World Health Organization officials said the coronavirus can spread in asymptomatic patients, about one to three days before symptoms start.
“It’s very important to note that even if you are pre-symptomatic, you still have to transmit through droplets. You still have to have these infectious particles that come out of your nose and mouth,” Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s team lead on the coronavirs, said at a press conference from the organizations Geneva headquarters on Monday.
The article goes on to state the following:
She said models of the outbreak suggest that there are “large numbers of unrecognized transmission.” She emphasized those are unrecognized patients, not asymptomatic.
One WHO official warned there may be many people who are infected unknowingly.
In a recently-released study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Singapore, researchers examined how presymptomatic or asymptomatic coronavirus carriers could easily spread the deadly virus, despite feeling perfectly healthy.
“It might not be enough for only persons with symptoms to limit their contact with others because persons without symptoms might transmit infection,” researchers warned.
Kerkhove said on Monday, “We may be missing people who are out there who are infected but we’re missing them because of certain surveillance strategies.”
