Thanks to one of the courses I have taken on Covid-19, I came across these papers: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/langas/article/PIIS2468-1253(20)30083-2/fulltext
and this one https://www.nature.com/articles/s41575-020-0295-7
for another potential route of transmission via gastrointestinal tract. I read that the active virus was detected for up to 5 weeks in stool samples of certain patients after the patients seemingly had recovered. Could this explain some of the mystery behind the virus perhaps? Could this explain why the number of cases keep on increasing despite the self isolation?
What do you all think?
