Incubation Period Update?

On Worldometer, they are still showing a few different median times from being infected to the first symptoms. We’re all accustomed to hearing about the potential 14 days in the media, and for good reason. But it can also be as low as 2 days, apparently. This being such a wide range already, I would think that we should have a much better handle on the mean, as well as the confidence interval, by now. Is this updated anywhere?

Also, is it known which percentage of people know exactly when they became infected? If I became symptomatic today, I would have no way of knowing whether it was from 2 weeks ago, or this past Thursday. But I live in a densely populated area, and it is impossible to completely protect myself, despite following the recommended best practices.
