“It takes 10-15 days on average for patients to recover. In severe cases, however, this period may last a month. After recovery, patients undergo 14-day rehabilitation,” Oqilov said.

“According to the quarantine rules, if laboratory analysis is negative for the whole 14 days, their quarantine ends, but if results are positive, the quarantine will continue. A person who has symptoms of the virus should not leave the quarantine zone,” he added.
