Asymptomatic spread?

Asymptomatic spread is nothing to be afraid of, it’s rare and in many proofs, non-existent.

The following is from

Keep in mind asymptomatic spread is the primary reason we’re told to wear masks “just in case you’re an asymptomatic spreader”…

study released in Nov. 2020 conducted in Wuhan, China, and published in the respected scientific journal Nature, reports that asymptomatic persons who have tested positive for Covid-19 do not pass on the infection to others.

December 2020: A meta-analysis of 54 studies with 77,758 participants finds household secondary attack rate (chance an infected person will infect one or more people at home) is 18% if the index case is symptomatic and 0.7% if asymptomatic.

Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said It still appears to be rare that a asymptomatic individual actually transmits onward.  She said it was “rare” 3 times. The next day, due to political pressure, the WHO stepped back from her statement but did not contradict it.

Dr. Fauci early in the pandemic had this to say about asymptomatic spread: “ all the history of respiratory born viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks…

The World Health Organization reported on four individual studies that found between 0% and 2.2% of people with asymptomatic infection infected anyone else. They conclude: “…individuals without symptoms are less likely to transmit the virus than those who develop symptoms.”

This study stated: “…transmission capacity from asymptomatic cases was limited. This supports the view of the World Health Organization that asymptomatic cases were not the major drivers of the overall epidemic dynamics.”

In this study, the researchers exposed an asymptomatic covid19 positive individual to 455 uninfected and tracked the infection rate. Of those 455, 0 became infected.

This study states“While asymptomatic individuals can transmit the infection, their relative degree of infectiousness seems to be limited.”

This study concluded: “Currently, there is no clear evidence that COVID-19 asymptomatic persons can transmit SARS-CoV-2”
