For coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19), substantial proportion of secondary transmission may occur before illness onset. During the epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome, it was evident that particularly those involved in airway-related procedures such as endotracheal intubation was highly susceptible.
