The World Health Organization came out a few days ago with a statement regarding the Coronavirus. They stated that “people who are asymptomatic are very rare in the spread of the virus.” Since the onset of the Coronavirus, misinformation has been going out to the public. Many doctors were saying that asymptomatic people could transmit the virus along with infected people.
The World Health Organization and the CDC have been feeding the public misinformation on the virus. These new findings by the World Health Organization bring light and clarity to what most folks already knew. Which is how can a person who is not sick and show no symptoms, still pass on the virus?
Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit said in a briefing on Monday, “From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” adding, “It’s very rare.”
Coronavirus is still an ongoing mystery to the public and the health community at large. This new information may get black folks off the hook. We are now being blamed for the spreading of the virus. If asymptomatic people can’t spread the virus, then we just need to determine whose is asymptomatic.
