Asymptomatic People Spread Coronavirus – Covid-19 Biggest Concerns

COVID-19 Global Outbreak Increase

Health officials are urging people and communities to take precautions and do their maximum to limit the spread of the disease as the number of infections and deaths are increasing each day globally.

Many people who have tested positive for the infection have not displayed symptoms at all, and this has been one of the biggest concerns with this virus.

Can Asymptomatic People Spread Coronavirus?

According to Science News, a new study of nine people who tested positive for the virus in Germany suggests that people are mainly contagious in the first week of the disease before they have any symptoms. After many reports of asymptomatic people spreading the virus, other experts have also come to similar conclusions.

According to experts, one of the most effective methods to avoid spreading the infection is to practice social distancing as it limits contact between the public and those who are sick.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged that it is believed people who have new coronavirus but are asymptomatic can still spread the virus and as Covid-19 is a new disease and experts are “still learning how

it spreads,” this practice is especially important.

At the University of Minnesota, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, Michael Osterholm said, “Now we know that asymptomatic transmission is likely to play an important role in spreading the disease. He added saying that a pandemic like this can be fueled by such asymptomatic infection and this makes controlling the disease very difficult.”

According to the CDC, although it was known previously that the asymptomatic spread of the disease was possible, it was not thought to the main way the virus spreads.

However, according to Osterholm, since then, it has become clear that than the risk level originally thought, the risks associated with the virus spreading by individuals who are asymptomatic are higher.

The researchers in Germany also found that it is likely that individuals are no longer at risk of infecting others by day 10 due to the immune system creating antibodies by then.
