SARS-CoV-2, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV viral load dynamics, duration of viral shedding, and infectiousness: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Although SARS-CoV-2 RNA shedding in respiratory and stool samples can be prolonged, duration of viable virus is relatively short-lived. SARS-CoV-2 titres in the upper respiratory tract peak in the...

Delighted that our paper on temporal dynamics of #SARSCoV2 , SARS and MERS viral shedding and infectiousness is published today. People infected with SARS-CoV-2 are most likely to be highly infectious in the first week of symptom onset. thelancet.com/journals/lanmi… pic.twitter.com/kJ1uCUnTLk

How long are people with #COVID19 contagious for? "No study detected live virus beyond day 9 of illness, despite persistently high viral loads, which were inferred from cycle threshold values." Terrific study by @mugecevik & colleagues: bit.ly/2IVfupj pic.twitter.com/siZ4d24yqz

NEW 🔥🔥systematic review suggests although #COVID19 pts might have prolonged RNA shedding of up to 83 days in upper respiratory tract infection , no live virus was isolated from culture beyond day 9 of symptoms despite persistently high viral RNA loads thelancet.com/journals/lanmi…

Wow. No study detected live virus of #sarscov2 beyond day 9 of illness, despite persistently high viral loads. This is from 79 different studies in over 5000+ individuals! #covid19aus thelancet.com/journals/lanmi…
