can asymptomatic folks give you the virus


the answer appears to be yes

i was asked that question this week by someone who heard the news that the who said that if you are an asymptomatic person it was rare to transmit the virus to someone
they said no we were wrong

why do they do that

asymptomatic i will call it a carrier thats my word not the scientists has the virus and never ever has any symptoms
lucky folks they are
there are a lot of folks who are asymptomatic carriers my word not the scientists
it helps me keep all this separated in my brain
dr fauci says that 40% of the cases may be from these asymptomatic cases
now i saw that in writing from a news article and didnt hear him say it on the news

so its my understanding is that asymptomatic folks who never have symptoms probably can spread the virus
none of the screening thats done like temp checks questions of your health separate them out
they can be found by doing covid 19 testing for the infection
the dreaded nasal swab
although you have to worry about the high false negative results

then there are presymptomatic folks
these are infected folks who have the infection but dont have symptoms yet
they will usually in a few days
they then develop the infectious symptoms we hear about fever cough headache etc

this group is another one you need to worry about also being around
they dont know they have it yet and you dont know they have it

when i see someone come near me without a mask i consider them either
covid 19 infected

i keep my distance not 6 ft either its more like 20 ft
i wear my mask since if it does get blowed around in the air around me the mask will help me some
a n95 mask would be the best

thats how you will catch it by going maskless and breathing in the virus when you are around someone with it

if you are one of those without a mask
the several days if you get infected before you start having symptoms you are infecting folks as you wander around
if you are one of those who become an asymptomatic carrier my word not the scientists then you might be even more dangerous
you will spread the virus a lot longer since you wont get sick
those you infect will

thats why you should wear a mask
