The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that there is little evidence of transmission of the virus through asymptomatic corona patients. According to them, it is now important to identify and isolate symptomatic patients rather than worry too much about asymptomatic ones.
Maria Van said that it is assumed from the statistics and information of some countries. It cannot be said for sure, more research is needed.
Maria Van said that the government should now focus on identifying the corona virus and keeping people with symptoms in isolation. Also identifying those who have come in contact with infected persons.
Maria said, "We have data from a number of countries that are monitoring the transmission link very well." They are following the asymptomatic, monitoring their contacts. In this they do not see secondary infection. It is very rare.
Director General of WHO Dr. Tedros Adhanom said that the number of new infections has increased to more than 100,000 in nine of the last 10 days. Last Sunday, the number was 136,000, which is a new record of infections in a single day worldwide.
