In brief: Varies
Depending upon the type of infection (otitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, etc.
), and the immune status of the patient the duration of illness can be highly variable. This is also dependent upon the age, since this is increasingly recognized as a disease of adults as well as children. In symptomatic persons with mild disease a week to 10 days would seem reasonable.
