Description

As the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic continued, the effectiveness of existing quarantine measures is one of the major concerns. An expert in mathematical modelling for infectious diseases at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) estimated that there was a 3.5-day time gap between patients showing Covid-19 symptoms and being quarantined in Hong Kong. And in this case, there will be a possible increase of around 60 infected cases from mid-February to mid-March.
