2019-nCOV virus could remain dormant for up to 24 days

Dr Zhong Nan-Shan

Top medical researchers in China have discovered that the incubation period for the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCOV) that has wrecked havoc in the country could be up to 24 days - 10 days longer than experts previously thought.

The research was led by Dr Zhong Nan-Shan, who discovered the SARS Coronavirus in 2003 and a leading specialist advisor to the National Health Committee.

Researchers who extracted data from 1,099 Coronavirus patients from 522 hospitals in 31 provinces found that only 1.18% of patients “had a direct contact with wildlife”. The majority of the patients had contracted the virus from being in contact with infected people from Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus outbreak.

The study also found that only about 43.8% of those infected had developed fever, while 56.2% had remained asymptomatic until a full-blown infection creeps in at around 3 to 24 days, the norm being 3 days.

Of the patients observed in the study,  more than 80% of them developed lymphopenia, which is a state where a specific white blood cell that is part of the body’s first-line of defence against diseases is reduced.

* Lymphopenia is commonly caused by infections and the flu, and usually recovers on its own after the patient made a full recovery.

The researchers concluded that the virus “spreads rapidly” by human-to-human transmission.

The findings, which have not yet been peer reviewed, were published on Sunday (9 Feb) on medRxiv titled ‘Clinical characteristics of 2019 novel coronavirus infection in China’.

  • Dr. Chan:

    Dr. Boyle, Harvard Graduate, Bioterrorism expert since Pres. Bush Sr. Administration already stated nCoV 2019 is a leaked engineered bio weapon grade virus from Wuhan BSL4 lab.
    Combo of HIV (Long incubation time), Flu (spread fast, further, wider), SARS(Lethal). Live longer outside on formites and mutates faster to counter vaccine and drugs.
    Could be true? Based on the fact that it has killed and spread more than SARS in this short amount of time.

  • REIME CHANGE is the solution:

    The Guardian: ‘Super spreader’ brought coronavirus from Singapore to Sussex via France

    For sure the “super spreader” was not wearing a mask because he did not have symptoms. The ones he infected were also not wearing mask because they were not (yet) sick.

    “… incubation period for the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCOV) that has wrecked havoc in the country could be up to 24 days – 10 days longer than experts previously thought.”

    So you can be infected for over twenty days (and spreading the virus) before you realize you are sick. But according to MOH do not wear mask unless you (know) are sick. But you won’t know for up 24 days. A really STUPID advise.

    Another compelling reason for REGIME CHANGE.

    That has been my thought since the start. The rapidity of the spread, the delay in allowing U.S. experts to ground zero, the sealing off of the wild-life market, the silencing of the two whistle-blowers – the young doctor who died under a cloud of suspicion and the journalist who went missing after being quarantined.

    As usual, those talents at MOH will tell this simi Dr Zhong and his team to go fly kite, citing lack of evidence, like it did to the Shanghai simi medical experts like that.

    Who is this Dr Zhong compared to all the talents in MOH right? Sillyporeans don’t pay them millions for nothing one.

    Don’t worry, no need to worry. Must trust the party one.

  • Harder Truths:

    Definitely an engineered virus that CCP does not want the world to find out. Also you are not immune to it if you survive – you can get it again – and again – and again.

    CCP playing with bio-engineering – first gene-splicing now virus. Who knows what else they have in their Wuhan factory.

    @Gilybullsing
    I don’t believe China is the sick man of the East. China is a rising power governed/ruled by Evil CCP (No transparency, No free speech, Cover ups, Corruption etc., Now Xi wants to end 2 term limit and rule forever?)

    However, if China were to become a ‘Real’ Democracy, rid of CCP and give power back to the people, it’s progress would be healthy and unstoppable.

    I do think certain elements of Communism is good (everyone has equal share, equal power, equal say etc.) But CCP did not follow these principles. So they are not truly communist. They are just a gang of mobsters enriching themselves, just like PAP using POFMA.

    As a Pathologist, I have extensive training in toxicology and microbiology. Dr. Boyle comments on 2019-nCov can be substantiated by how this virus is behaving right now. Basically, it behaves like a super soldier. It is stealth, it is fast, light, small, covers great distance (SARS is heavy droplets only 3 feet coverage. nCov is aerosol covers 6 to 8 feet. It has a hard protein shell, can survive heat on outside longer, not sure about bleach though. It is adaptable. Mutates quickly to counter any attacks against it. And it is deadlier than SARS.

    How can a virus be this smart? God create it or an brunch of evil people came up with this? Just like the Russian came up anthrax.

    Then CCP conveniently blame it on the fish market, which have been in operation for years and years…Dead animals can’t defend themselves, I guess. So they have to take the blame.

  • Sojoürner Truth:

    The Chinese are not “committing biological warfare,” and if you don’t understand that persons who posted such comments are racist nationalist blaming sick people for getting sick, then the answer to your question is “yes,” racism is the problem.

    Economists rally to see social problems like this through a monetary lens which eclipses any empathy and emotional outlook onto these issues. There are families diminishing and worried for their lives every day.

    What Trump’s fake trade war wanted to do, has been accomplished by the coronavirus. It follows the narrative of assuming there is a linear timeline of progress to follow where the West is at the top. Meanwhile, China simultaneously has areas leap years ahead of whatever the “West” is supposed to be.

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-white-house-business-session-nations-governors/

    A great number of pandemics (swine flu, avian flu, coronavirus) arise from people eating animal flesh—and not just exotic animals. It is clear that consuming other species is not only morally reprehensible but also dangerous to our microbiomes.

    Stop belittling the Chinese government when the US let H1N1 spread and kill 300,000 people. It’s a fickle comparison to make.

  • Gilybullsing:

    @ Dr Chan

    The contention is not if the CCP is evil.

    The contention is whether Dr Boyle’s assessments are credible.

    Dr Boyle is from the US of a where an anti PRC fever is running high.

    American expects are well known for their professionalism. However, they are also well known for speaking for people who pay them more.

    A good joke is a professor and his team was engaged by a coffee producer to do a research about the benefits of drinking coffee. He and his team did a good job by the deadline. Next, the professor was engaged by the rival of the coffee producer for a project research on the side effect of drinking coffee. He did a equally good job.

    The US of a is said to be the bastion of human rights, justice and equality. The three hundreds and twenty million people living there are very upright and peace loving and tolerate no evil. It is therefore a tremendous shock to see Wall Streets Journal could tolerate “ PRC is the real sick man of Asia” to appear in their publications.

    If Dr Boyle is credible in his assessment about 2019-nCoV, please proceed to lodge a complaint to the International Court of Justice as this is a crime to humanity which should have no place on earth!

    Scary as that means quarantine period should be 24days n not 14days and those [mostly prcs u bet ] whose quarantine order expired less than 10 days ago are walking in our midst even tho they are still potentially infectious.
    Already the do little do late pinky SG govt find it a big strain and troublesome to implement a 14days quarantine , whats more if it has to be as long as 24 days and the cases that must be quarantined continue to rise . .
    This virus sure is showing the middle finger to do the reckless open leg policy of the do little do late pinky SG leeders and their absolute GREED and Self serving interest over people mentality. .

    So, yes I have mask on all day everyday when out of my house and car.

    Singkees need to be spoonfed. If not they dun learn. A law is needed to force hawker centers to ensure all utensils toilets and tables are certified clean after each use.

    Hope singaporeans can eventually become 1st world people. Maybe within 20 years.

    Any update on the VJC teacher? Has any student or staff from the school been infected? Schools and kindergartens are potential spreading ground for the virus, especially when you have 30 students in close contacts within an enclosed area with the airconditioning on. These students, if infected, will in turn spread it to their families. If the virus can stay dormant for 14 or 24 days, there is plenty of time to pass the bug around.

    @dr. chan
    china is innately, historically, and culturally based on 儒,释,道, and sees no necessasity to *change* to the immature foreign-styled “democracy”, one filled with an ego-god belief and alter-egos. china pantheon of “gods” are former well-respected humans whose admirable qualities Chinese want to remember and seek to emulate. there is nothing divine or mystical, and above all, non-religion (儒家,佛家,道家, 非 (宗)教).

    ccp are also humans and they also have the negative tendencies and cravings of human nature. but rest assured, by erring a little to the left, and then coming back, just to find themselves erring more to the right. very soon they will hit the sweet spot of running itself in the middle. but overtime due to the cyclic nature of change itself, the cycle repeats itself over their 1000s years way of life.
    what’s the point to accede to “modern” and untested views that will fail them horribly and terribly in their society? their life philosophy is more profound than a person’s whole life expectation of them. so it is only right to understand the 5000s years of them rather to impose any external “standards” on them, so as to coexist with acceptance of similarities and differences.

    as regards to your opinion and external experts’ views of the engineered virus, the bio-virus warfare, the china chinese are not china’s target and hence it is highly improbable that it is manufactured by china.

    I have read and appreciate all philosophies e.g. Taoism, Buddhism, Confucius even certain aspects of Communism.

    The issue is that CCP, starting with Mao, twisted logic to suite their political goals. Using Cultural revolution, destroyed centuries of knowledge, artifacts/building, religion, philosophical writings etc. so as to rid of intellects and his political opponents and replaced it with his ‘Little Red Book’.

    Communism basically states everyone is equal (Put in equal best effort, have equal share, equal rights and equal speech etc.) But CCP turn it into ‘Animal Farm’.

    And now, Xi wants to eliminate 2 term limits and wants to rule forever – return to dynastic rule?

    They shut up whistleblower (Dr. Li), Re-educate (Xinjiang Muslim Communities, put them in Re-education camps), Cover-up everything critical they can.

    If CCP is not KIASU, then let there be free and fair elections, Just like KMT in Taiwan. Since it is the (People’s Republic of China), then let the PEOPLE decide their own destiny.

    As I said I believe PRC is not sick man of the east. It is the CCP. Let (People’s Republic of China)’s destiny be decided by its people through free and fair elections.

    If the PEOPLE of China still wants CCP in charge – so be it. No threats, no cover ups, no ‘Re-education’, no punishment for choosing the alternatives.

    one needs to view 佛家 as 佛家, which is similar but not the same as 佛教 (in your words “Buddhism” which is universally accepted as a religion).
    likewise, 道家 should be understood as 道家, and not mis-represented as 道教 (in your words “Taoism”, ie also a religion).

    from here, you have clearly demonstrated that you are employing the western viewpoints (in which ego-god religion is involved) to dissect and interpret what’s within China and life within, which is very superficial, bias, self-esteemed and “not understanding”, to insist (which is an undemocratic demand) on compliance.

    I am a born and bred true blue Singaporean, grew up in traditional Chinese (TeoChew) family for 22 years. Emigrated to the USofA only 15 yrs ago after completing NS.
    I have more exposure to the Chinese philosophical teachings than Western culture. I have limited western viewpoints except maybe for the advance western medicine. Recently, I also tried incorporating Chinese medicine, acupuncture as holistic medicine into my practice.
    As I said I agree and appreciate most of the Chinese philosophical teachings. The only issue is when politician twist it and use it to gain political power and control/brainwash the citizens to suite their propaganda. The CCP is the best at this.
