What is the most dangerous day in the disease, “Covid-19”, which may determine whether the patient will recover or die, and what happens to the patient from the first day of infection until recovery?
About 40% of cases of infection with Corona are without symptoms, and only 20% of cases accompanied by symptoms become severe or critical, according to a report in “Business Insider” ( the Business Archives Insider ).
The answer to the question, “What is the most dangerous day in Covid-19 disease?”, Is the ninth and tenth days.
In the following, we show what happens to the patient since the first day, and we will reveal during it why the ninth and tenth days were the most dangerous in the infection of the emerging corona virus, according to studies conducted in China on patients with “Covid-19, and press reports :”
The incubation period
This day begins the moment a person catches the emerging corona virus and enters their body. The incubation period is the time between the virus entering the body and the onset of symptoms.
Day 4-5 from incubation
During this period, the person has no symptoms, and during that time the affected person probably does not know that he is sick. The problem here is that a person can transmit the virus during the pre-symptomatic stage.
Day 1 of the symptom period
The first day on which symptoms appear is usually the fourth or fifth day after infection, because as mentioned above, the previous stage is the incubation stage of the virus.
Symptoms start out mild, and patients usually have a fever followed by a cough. There may be diarrhea or nausea a day or two before this, which could be a sign of a more severe infection.
In severe cases, symptoms can start to worsen, and patients may have difficulty breathing, especially if they are elderly or have a pre-existing health condition.
The most severe cases of “Covid-19” tend to worsen on the fifth to tenth day after the onset of symptoms.

This is the time it took, on average, some patients in Wuhan to be hospitalized after their symptoms began. Other patients in Wuhan developed shortness of breath on that day.
On this day, severely ill patients are likely to experience shortness of breath, pneumonia, or acute respiratory distress syndrome, a disease that may require intubation.
Intubation is a procedure in which a tube is used that connects a ventilator to the lung airways through the mouth or nose.
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is – according to the Mayo Clinic – a condition that occurs when fluid builds up in the tiny, flexible air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. The fluid prevents the lungs from filling with enough air, which means less oxygen reaches the bloodstream, depriving the organs of the oxygen they need to function.
ARDS is often fatal, as not many people with ARDS live.
The risk of death increases with age and the severity of the disease. Among people who survive acute respiratory distress syndrome, some make a full recovery while others have permanent lung damage.
A study showed that some patients in Wuhan developed Sepsis, an infection caused by an aggressive immune response.
Sepsis – also known as sepsis – is a condition that represents one of the complications of infection and threatens the life of the infected person, and it occurs when the body’s immune system reacts sharply to the infection, which leads to damage to the body itself.
Sepsis can occur as a result of problems that spread from other parts of the body, such as chest infections, urinary tract infections, and wounds.
For his part, Ukrainian doctor Andrei Pinkov says that the most dangerous period for patients with “Covid-19” infection is between the ninth and tenth days, when shortness of breath appears, and acute respiratory distress syndrome is manifested.
The doctor believed – in a press interview – that such an emergency, as a rule, is not associated with bacterial processes, but with an overreaction by the immune system.
The respiratory disease doctor confirmed that the patient may suffer in the second week from new immune changes in the blood, and witness an increase in all indicators of reactions from inflammation.

Day 10 to 11
If patients experience worsening symptoms, they will likely be admitted to the intensive care unit.
If the patient is recovering, he feels that his fever is starting to recede.
Coughing may disappear on this day in recovered patients.
By these days , the patient usually has recovered and discharged from hospital or died, as on average, people in Wuhan of the virus recovered and discharged from the hospital or died after 2.5 to 3 weeks, according to a study journal Lancet ( The Lancet ).
In recovering patients, their shortness of breath may start to improve.
Patients may stay in the hospital for a longer period, then recover and be discharged. But the symptoms may not completely disappear, as some Corona virus patients reported that they had symptoms for several months, including chest pain, shortness of breath and nausea, as well as heart palpitations and a loss of taste and smell.
