Doctor and TV presenter Yevgeny Komarovsky answered the question of a subscriber about how much a person who has had a coronavirus is dangerous to others if someone in his family is still sick. The video with comments is available on Komarovsky's YouTube channel.

The host said that at present there are no clear recommendations on how much time an already ill person should spend on self-isolation after contact with an infected patient. But, since "everyone is terribly afraid", it is impossible to contact other people, the doctor said.

Komarovsky also assessed the situation in which one of the family members caught the coronavirus, but the rest remained healthy. First, he expressed a scientific point of view on this issue.

“The first symptoms, for example, appeared on the first of November. How much will this person be contagious? Theoretically, the maximum is 7-8 days, but medical science will probably say that it is better to play it safe for 10 days, before November 10 And now add 14 days (the maximum incubation period) - that means you can go free on November 24, "the TV presenter calculated.

The doctor added that the described situation should also be considered from the point of view of logic and common sense.

“With a probability well over 99.9 percent, you are not contagious and not a peddler. If only because, in order to be a real peddler, you must be a person who is not capable of producing antibodies, "Komarovsky said, adding that in very rare cases a person can get coronavirus a second time. For this reason, the direct answer to the question whether it is possible in this case to contact other people is negative.
