Study shows low infectivity of some asymptomatic SARS-COV-2 carriers

A new study published by the Respiratory Medicine journal, researchers found that some asymptomatic carriers may not be as infectious as we once thought.

The published study focuses on one 22-year old female with a history of congenital heart disease (referred to in the study as Case A). The patient has been experiencing shortness of breath for the past 16 years, but states that the condition worsened in one month, which led her to seek for medical treatment. She tested positive for SARS-COV-2. She was soon transferred to a quarantine ward, and all 455 individuals who were in contact with her were also quarantined.

By looking at the medical history study showed that none of the 455 individuals who came in contact with Case A was infected with SARS-COV-2.
