Figure 2

Simulation of frequency distribution of incubation period of severe acute respiratory syndrome. Data used for this simulation were obtained from Canada, Hong Kong, and the United States, for a total sample size of 19. Many of the patients included in the database had multiple possible incubation periods (see Table), resulting in the confidence intervals displayed for each day.
