The period is anything from one day. Typical it is within a few days of exposure.I think the very long incubation period, other than other viruses where you get sick and isolate yourself away naturally mostly, in this case during that incubation period if you are exposed multiple times, it builds up and explodes in your body as it germinates in different days after the incubation period(7-14 days)
