If you have tested positive for the Coronavirus then it may be a good idea for you to stay in quarantine. The asymptomatic spread of any respiratory disease is a rare phenomenon. This is because coughing in open is one of the main contributors to any SARS related disease. However, people may be able to spread the virus unknowingly even without such noticeable issues. It may be rare but it is still an open possibility.
Connecticut health experts have joined the chorus exclaiming the same research. While it is not yet under our understanding of how common COVID-19 is spread by those without symptoms. It’s definitely an aspect of the illness that needs to be treated with vigilance.

Coronavirus spread by asymptomatic carriers
Dr. Michael Parry, director of infectious disease at Stamford Hospital, agreed that there’s no question that COVID-19 can be spread by those without symptoms. Are these asymptomatic people as contagious as someone who is fully symptomatic? It is a question that is harder to answer.
Some reports have indicated that people with no symptoms can transmit the virus. It is not yet known how often it happens, WHO stated on its website. WHO is assessing ongoing research on the topic and will continue to share updated findings on its official website.
According to guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 35 percent of people with COVID-19 are asymptomatic. In fact, that is part of what has made the illness so problematic. This is mainly because 35 percent of almost 8 million people is a lot to take in. With so many asymptomatic people all around us, it becomes problematic to stay safe from the virus. Especially when we don’t even understand who may be sick.
