    ¿hora en que se reportó el primer síntoma?
    No se me ocurre otra cosa. Esperemos la opción de otro colega.

    Hola damas!

    As you ladies know "time to" is different than "time of".


    "Time to" might refer to the time interval between a given point and the first sign of a symptom such as in a medical experiment or a patient under observation.

    Ex. The patient was placed under observation at 9AM and the first symptom occurred at 10AM.

    Time of first reported symptom

    Se reportó el primer síntoma a las 10 de la mañana.

    Time to first reported symptom

    La hora que se reportó el primer síntoma fue una hora.

    So I'm wondering if it shouldn't be something like "cuanto tiempo hasta que se reportó el primer síntoma" .

    ¿Que opinan?

    vicente,

    I'd say "Tiempo (transcurrido) hasta que se reportó el primer síntoma". Good observation!

    Si, definitivamente debe ser eso: el tiempo que transcurrió hasta que se reportó el primer síntoma. Vicente, you're always so right!!!

    Thank you Sandra...but not always! and I wonder if I am right in this instance because we did not have the context to work with.
