Dry cough, fever, shortness of breath, fatigue, and loss of sense of smell and taste-these are the most common symptoms associated with COVID-19. However, according to the CDC, one of the most terrible symptoms of coronavirus (because it is one of the most important causes of the transmission of highly contagious and potentially fatal viruses) becomes more difficult to recognize.
According to the new guidelines of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in its COVID-19 pandemic planning program section, it focuses on CDC website, Their “current best estimate” is that about 40% of people infected with the virus absolutely have no symptoms of this disease, higher than the 35% estimate in May. They also emphasized that the number of asymptomatic cases is still uncertain.
according to A major studyThe main symptoms reported by coronavirus patients are fever (78%), cough (57%) and fatigue (31%).
Illuminate asymptomatic people
The mortality rate of infection has also been added to this section. They explained: “The IFR takes into account both symptomatic and asymptomatic conditions, so it may be a more directly measurable parameter for the severity of COVID-19 disease.” Previously, they only treated symptomatic cases as part of their mortality. Their “current best estimate” program calculated an infection rate of 0.65%, which means that 0.65% of people infected with the virus (including those with symptoms and those without symptoms) will die as a result.
They also noted on the chart that about half of the transmission occurred before someone became sick and showed symptoms, which is 40% higher than the May estimate.
Compared with asymptomatic people, the spread of the virus is estimated to be 75%, which is lower than the previous estimate of 100%. However, they did explain: “Since asymptomatic cases are difficult to identify and transmission is difficult to observe and quantify, the relative infectivity of asymptomatic and symptomatic cases remains highly uncertain.”
You may be spreading COVID-19
As of July 12, in the United States alone, 3.173 million people were infected with COVID-19, resulting in 133,666 deaths. Experts believe that the latest surge in cases is mainly related to Asymptomatic spreader.
