The spread of the Covid-19 among members in a family group after one individual is infected is “common” and occurs quickly after illness onset, relating to new research through the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The person exposed or suspected of experiencing Covid-19 should always be isolated before getting tested, and before test outcomes get back to protect others in the home, said the analysis, published Friday when looking at the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
“Because prompt isolation of persons with #COVID-19 can lessen household transmission, persons who suspect which they could have COVID-19 should isolate, stay in the home, and employ an independent bedroom and bathroom if feasible,” wrote a CDC-led team of researchers.
All people in family members should also wear masks all of the time per space, the group said.
