Seven-day isolation is enough for most covid cases

Anyone who has typical symptoms of covid or received a positive diagnosis should be in isolation, restricting contact with other people as much as possible, for at least seven days.

This is the recommendation of most health entities and doctors working in the area.

The measure is necessary to cut the chains of transmission of the virus and prevent the transmission of the pathogen to other individuals – especially to those who can develop the severe forms of the disease, related to hospitalization, intubation and death.

But this quarantine time can be longer or shorter, depending on a series of individual characteristics and conditions.
