80 Percent of People Who Test Positive for COVID Have This in Common | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The study—which focused on a number of COVID-19 infections within private households, hospitals, nursing homes, and other institutions in England—shines a light on the importance of "silent spreaders," patients with COVID-19 who continue to interact with others, unaware that they are actually contagious, the BBC reports. According to the research, 78 percent of respondents who had COVID-19 said they didn't have symptoms on the day they got tested. That figure includes both pre-symptomatic patients, who eventually show signs of the virus, as well as asymptomatic patients, who never develop noticeable symptoms of the disease.
