    Motivation: Wuhan pneumonia MESHD pneumonia is an acute infectious HP infectious disease MESHD caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). It is being treated as a Class A infectious disease though it was classified as Class B according to the Infectious Disease MESHD Prevention Act of China. Accurate estimation of the incubation period TRANS of the coronavirus is essential to the prevention and control. However, it remains unclear about its exact incubation period TRANS though it is believed that symptoms of COVID-19 can appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 or even more after exposure. The accurate incubation period TRANS calculation requires original chain-of-infection data that may not be fully available in the Wuhan regions. In this study, we aim to accurately calculate the incubation period TRANS of COVID-19 by taking advantage of the chain-of-infection data, which is well-documented and epidemiologically informative, outside the Wuhan regions. Methods: We acquired and collected officially reported COVID-19 data from 10 regions in China except for Hubei province. To achieve the accurate calculation of the incubation period TRANS, we only involved the officially confirmed cases TRANS with a clear history of exposure and time of onset. We excluded those without relevant epidemiological descriptions, working or living in Wuhan for a long time, or hard to determine the possible exposure time. We proposed a Monte Caro simulation approach to estimate the incubation of COVID-19 as well as employed nonparametric ways. We also employed manifold learning and related statistical analysis to decipher the incubation relationships between different age TRANS/ gender TRANS groups. Result: The incubation period TRANS of COVID-19 did not follow general incubation distributions such as lognormal, Weibull, and Gamma distributions. We estimated that the mean and median of its incubation were 5.84 and 5.0 days via bootstrap and proposed Monte Carlo simulations. We found that the incubation periods TRANS of the groups with age TRANS>=40 years and age TRANS<40 years demonstrated a statistically significant difference. The former group had a longer incubation period TRANS and a larger variance than the latter. It further suggested that different quarantine time should be applied to the groups for their different incubation periods TRANS. Our machine learning analysis also showed that the two groups were linearly separable. incubation of COVID-19 along with previous statistical analysis. Our results further indicated that the incubation difference between males TRANS and females TRANS did not demonstrate a statistical significance.
