Figure

Changes in severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 viral RNA load in A) nasopharyngeal swabs, B) feces, and C) saliva of mildly symptomatic and asymptomatic children with coronavirus disease over time, South Korea. The thick red line indicates trend in viral RNA load over time, and the shaded areas represent 95% CIs. The dashed line indicates the detection limit (1.25 × 104 copies/mL). Specimens with undetectable viral RNA loads are shown under the dashed line.
