ARS symptoms usually start within 2 weeks

I have search the forum and have quoted the statements below:
Does this still holds true? Your response please for a worried guy like me.

From H. Hunter Handsfield, M.D

"ARS symptoms usually start within 2 weeks"
"Further, symptoms of ARS usually start 10-20 days after exposures"
"ARS symptoms always start within 2 weeks of infection; 30 days is definitely too long."

From Dr. Hook
" The time scale of onset is far too early, 10-14 days is more in line?

Hi! again Howard when they say ARS occurs from 2-4 weeks does that mean that it include the onset of symptoms and the resolution of the ARS.

Thanks once again

Nobody on this forum is likely to disagree with Drs. Hook and Hansfield. And you're not going to get any different answers by adding a second, third, fourth, or fifth thread with the same questions. Seems time for you to move on!
