China answers questions about asymptomatic coronavirus
US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Chinese edition of Huanqiu Shibao , citing the Wuhan City Health Committee , described how to deal with asymptomatic carriers of coronavirus and what precautions should be taken.
Asymptomatic carriers do not have, for example, fever, cough, or sore throat, but pathogens or type-specific IgM antibodies to COVID-19 are still present in their airways.
Therefore, such people can also be sources of infection, although the World Health Organization believes that coronavirus is transmitted mainly by those who already have the disease.
The article notes that over time, the symptoms of the disease also appeared in some asymptomatic carriers. In most cases, they recovered on their own. Such people should be quarantined for 14 days, and then they need to pass two tests.
The most effective protective measures, the publication reminded, are maintaining distance, washing hands frequently and avoiding crowds.
The World Health Organization on March 11 declared a pandemic outbreak of coronavirus infection COVID-19. According to the latest WHO data , over 820 thousand people have been infected worldwide, more than 40 thousand have died.
