Coronavirus can be transmitted two days before the onset of symptoms, so the Chinese authorities have changed the definition of "close contact" with patients, said researcher emergency center of the Chinese center for disease control Xiang Nictoine.

They are included in the definition of people exposed to the patient two days before the disease manifested itself. "Before patients develop symptoms, two days before the incubation period the disease is contagious, that is why we have amended the definition of "close contact". Initially, we believed that close contact were those who interacted with patients with the onset of symptoms. Now we need to include in the definition people who had contact with the sick two days before he got sick, they also need to establish health surveillance," said Xiang Nictoine.
