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.
