Coronavirus patients remain contagious even after recovery

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — A new study by Chinese scientists showed that people who are cured of coronavirus can continue to spread the virus. In this regard, experts call for an extension of quarantine for those who are discharged from hospitals.

About half of the people who had mild coronavirus continued to infect others after the doctors recognized them as healthy. As it turned out, virus particles are stored on the oropharynx.

Patients no longer had any symptoms, but continued to infect people for about a week. People who have had the disease in a more severe form remain contagious for more than a week.

Thus, a global problem is brewing, related to the fact that the number of infected people will grow every day. Scientists asked authorities and doctors to extend isolation for patients for two weeks, even after coronavirus was not detected in their blood.

It is also scary that there are many sick people who do not have any symptoms. They can infect hundreds of people without even realizing it.
