Extended Data Fig. 3: Simulated proportions of negative serial intervals.

From: Temporal dynamics in viral shedding and transmissibility of COVID-19

Extended Data Fig. 3

Simulated proportions of negative serial intervals assuming start of infectiousness and peak infectiousness from 7 days before symptom onset to 3 days after symptom onset. From the estimated serial interval distribution based on infector-infectee pairs, 7.6% of the serial intervals were negative. Gray area represents the implausible range where the peak infectious is earlier than the start of infectiousness.
