Fig. 1

The incubation periods of viruses causing severe and mild human diseases. a Incubation periods (y-axis, log-scaled) of 41 human pathogenic viruses. The circle size corresponds to the length of the incubation period (the size scale is provided in the inset), and the colors correspond to the virus family. Severe diseases are indicated with a black border. b Comparison of the incubation periods (y-axis, log-scaled) between viruses causing mild (blue) vs. severe (red) human diseases, considering all 41 viruses collected. c Comparison of the incubation periods (y-axis, log-scaled) between viruses causing mild (blue) vs. severe (red) human disease, for ssRNA and dsDNA viruses. d Comparison of the incubation periods (y-axis, log-scaled) between viruses causing mild (blue) vs. severe (red) human disease, for large virus families. e Comparison of the incubation periods (y-axis, log-scaled) between viruses causing mild (blue) vs. severe (red) human disease, for diseases associated with distinct tissues. All indicatedĀ P values areĀ for the one sided rank-sum test
