‘If it does, is the 14-day quarantine period for a tier one exposure site necessary? Could it be reduced?’ she continued.

The TV presenter added that ‘most people don’t go into quarantine immediately’ as it ‘usually takes a few days for you to [be] alerted’.

Several followers pointed out that many infectious people only received a positive Covid result on their day 13 test in quarantine.  

Another tweeted: ‘It’s 14 days from the date of exposure, not from discovering you are a tier one contact.’ 

A third wrote: ‘That’s a very good question! Unfortunately no one in the VIC gov will answer it or even think about it as they didn’t come up with the question!’      

The Delta strain is highly transmissible and is considered to be significantly more infectious than previous strains of coronavirus. 

Researchers at the Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention in China found that Delta has a shorter incubation period and makes copies of itself in a host – allowing it to spread throughout the body more quickly.

The study found that when someone becomes sick with the Delta variant, it only took about four days to start exhibiting signs like cough and fever.

Comparatively, when infected with the original coronavirus, it took six days on average before the infection was detected.
