Estimated incubation distribution. (A) Hong Kong (n = 168), (B) Beijing* (n = 97) and (C) Taiwan (n = 156) using a non-parametric method (solid line) and fitted to a lognormal distribution (dashed line). (D) Comparison of estimated incubation distributions fitted to a lognormal distribution in Hong Kong (solid line), Beijing (dashed line), and Taiwan (dotted line). *The large steps seen in the non-parametric estimate in Beijing are aretefacts due to the small sample size.
