Asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is ‘very rare,’ WHO says
Note the date of the article, below: They knew the truth THAT long ago. Shortly, thereafter, they flipped 180 degrees and we all know why.
June 10, 2020 (CNBC) – Coronavirus patients without symptoms aren’t driving the spread of the virus, World Health Organization officials said, casting doubt on the validity of lockdowns and concerns by some researchers that the disease could be difficult to contain due to asymptomatic infections.
Preliminary evidence from the earliest outbreaks indicated that the virus could spread from person-to-person contact, even if the carrier never develops symptoms; But, now, WHO officials say that while asymptomatic spread seems to occur, it is not truly the way the virus is being transmitted.
“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said at a news briefing from the United Nations agency’s Geneva headquarters. “It’s very rare.”
The virus is primarily spread via respiratory droplets when someone coughs or sneezes or touches a contaminated surface, scientists say.

Is the CDC exaggerating the risk of outdoor COVID-19 transmission?
May 21, 2021 (Yahoo! News) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s official stance is that “less than 10 percent” of COVID-19 transmission has occurred outdoors, but The New York Times‘ David Leonhardt wrote Tuesday that that’s like saying “sharks attack fewer than 20,000 swimmers a year.” Sharks actually only attack around 150 people a year, so the 20,000 number is “both true and deceiving,” which appears to be the case with the CDC’s outdoor transmission assessment.
In reality, multiple epidemiologists told Leonhardt the actual figure is probably less than 1 percent, and may even be below 0.1 percent. The 10 percent benchmark “seems to be a huge exaggeration,” said Dr. Muge Cevik, a virologist at the University of St. Andrew’s.
The CDC reportedly reached that number based on research that defined any place that was a mix of indoors and outdoors as the latter. For instance, the bulk of cases tied to outdoor transmission in multiple studies occurred at construction sites in Singapore, which The New York Times reports were not solely outdoor settings, leaving open the possibility that transmission really occurred indoors. But even if all of the Singapore cases did occur outside, they still only made up less than 1 percent of total cases.
