    "SARS caused much more severe illness and what we saw in Ontario was that it tended to transmit particularly in healthcare settings where there was a lot of closed contact.”

    “With COVID-19, as we’re continuing to see, it’s not just limited to those settings. It can transmit in households, it can transmit in gatherings where people come together and don’t observe physical distancing. That’s part of the nature of the virus itself. Every virus is different, and what we know now about the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is that it has an incubation period of up to 14 days and when a person gets symptoms they’re able to transmit the virus to others from 48 hours before symptom onset, up to 14 days after symptom onset, so that’s a fairly long period of time,” Loo said.

    "“That’s very tricky for us, even when we’re being the most careful. If we don’t show any symptoms we could still potentially be pre-symptomatic and be able to transmit the virus and so for that reason, this is why it’s been so important for us to say ‘keep on physical distancing, wear that mask’ because you never know if you’ve happened to have picked up the virus.”

    In layman’s terms, it’s a virus like none other.


    “It’s within the family of coronaviruses, the same family of viruses that caused SARS but it is novel and no one on the planet has seen it before and so no one has immunity,” Loo said.
