My cousin has an eye virus infection (doctors told her it takes 21 days). How contagious could it be? Is it contagious in the period after recovery?Nov 3, 2015
Dr. Pierre Mardelli Ophthalmology
Viral infections are highly contagious, your cousin should avoid touching his/her eyes, shaking hands, and sharing towels, among other activities. But it won't be contagious after recovery.
