  1. Almost all body fluids, including sweat, contain virus, which is why there’s been a public health campaign in the epidemic-affected countries to have people stop shaking hands until the epidemic is over. During severe disease, after the person has become very sick, there are large amounts of virus on their skin. If the person recovers, they gradually clear out the virus. When they test negative twice for virus in blood, they can leave isolation, and at that time there would be no more virus on their skin either.
