86% of COVID-19 Infections Were Transmitted by Asymptomatic Individuals


Did you know that most people who are carriers of COVID-19 virus show no symptoms? These individuals are not coughing and spreading droplets, which is the main mode of transmitting the virus.

A study suggested that about 86% of COVID-19 infections were picked up from people who never had symptoms. These pre-symptomatic people may still generate respiratory droplets or leave traces on surfaces for indirect transmission.

COVID-19’s severity has a wide range, making this pandemic hard to fight:

  • It can be extremely severe and deadly in some people.
  • It can be extremely mild – and possibly even silent – in others.

In conclusion:

  • People who may have SARS-CoV-2 virus can show no symptoms and may not feel sick at all.
  • Individuals may be contagious before they feel sick.


That’s why it is important to take the circuit breaker measures seriously and stay home. Keep your family safe during this period by boosting your body’s natural defences.

Working from home? Here are handy tips to maintain productivity or remain focused even with kids around.

If you are planning to go out and buy household necessities, don’t forget to put your mask on, observe safe distancing, and follow these grocery shopping tips.
