Viral Infections

What is the duration of viral infections?

A Answers (1)

  • Because there are so many forms and varieties of viral infections, there is no one answer to how long the duration of the infection is. A common cold can last anywhere from four days to two weeks. The influenza virus usually lasts only a couple of days to a week. But infection with the HIV virus lasts for the rest of your life.
