A new study suggests that coronavirus patients are no longer infectious 11 days after getting sick. If true, it could mean patients who test positive for COVID-19 can be released from hospitals earlier. Current protocols require 14 days of isolation. Researchers in Singapore say the infectious period begins about two days before symptoms appear and lasts for 7-10 days total. After 11 days, the virus is no longer replicating and cannot spread.
