How long am I infectious if I have corona?

Updated at:

You are infectious 1 to 2 days before you develop symptoms. You are most infectious in the first few days after you develop symptoms. This decreases quickly and after 5 days you are usually no longer infectious. If you cough and sneeze you are more infectious. Be careful with people in fragile health who can become seriously ill from a respiratory infection. If necessary, wear a mouth-nose mask if you have symptoms and cannot keep your distance.
