Table 1 Parameter values for the model

From: Evaluation of undetected cases during the COVID-19 epidemic in Austria

  Value Reference
Incubation period 5.1 days (1.78) Lauer et al. [9]
Latency period 2 days Robert Koch Institute [10]
Time until infectious period 3.1 days (1.78) Incubation period minus latency period
Infectious period 6.3 days (1.25) Expert estimates in line with Robert Koch Institute [10]
Delay from symptom start to positive test result 3.8 days (2.38) Hellewell et al. [11]
Time between positive test result and recovery for detected mild cases 13.3 days (2.46) Based on reported COVID-19 data in Austria (Epidemiologisches Meldesystem [12])
Time between positive test result and recovery for detected severe cases 20.0 days (11.75) Based on reported COVID-19 data in Austria (Epidemiologisches Meldesystem [12])
Time between positive test result and recovery for detected critical cases 25.0 days (9.09) Based on reported COVID-19 data in Austria (Epidemiologisches Meldesystem [12])
