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.

The temporal dynamics of #SARSCoV2 viral shedding, infectiousness: a new systematic review @LancetMicrobe thelancet.com/journals/lanmi…
—~ 9 days of infectiousness; peaks early <5 days
—Viral load similar irrespective of symptoms or no symptoms

I don’t know how Dr. @mugecevik does it, but she manages to compile and synthesize all this useful information on top of seeing patients. Case in point: this excellent systematic review/meta-analysis on beta-CoV shedding and dynamics over time, by Dr. Cevik & colleagues. twitter.com/EricTopol/stat…

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."

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…
Doctor. Conversations on #covid19. Host @_Radiotherapy_ on RRR FM. I hired the private security guards. Also, Magic. For real.
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…
NEW—Infectiousness peaks early in #COVID19 patients, emphasising the need to rapidly isolate cases: finding from a systematic review and meta-analysis of three human coronaviruses @LancetMicrobe
