In the midst of what may be the worst pandemic to strike the world in centuries, as we write these lines the covid-19 coronavirus claims new victims in more than 100 countries, while the WHO refuses to make the official declaration of a global pandemic being It has already far exceeded the standards set by this organization, which in recent weeks has behaved more like a political party than like the rectum of global health.

And they concluded that most people who develop symptoms do so around the fifth day on average.
In addition, although it is unlikely that anyone who does not have symptoms before day 12 will then manifest them, they can still be infectious carriers.
Other research indicates that the incubation period can be up to 24 days, but that depends on the age of the patient, gender, the country where he is, among other situations.
