    The incubation period which is the time between the person infected with the virus and when symptoms appears could range from as short as 2 days to as long as 14 to 24 days for Covid-19. Many of the infected will recover from the illness in a few days. However, some of the more vulnerable group of people – the very young and old, or people whose immune system is compromised, would be at risk of developing severe infection, such as bronchitis or pneumonia.
