Asymptomatic Covid-19 patients are responsible for at least 50% of new cases of coronavirus transmission. This is evidenced by the results of a study by two employees of the US Centers for Disease Prevention and Control, published in the JAME Network.
Reportedly, during the research, potential distributors of the coronavirus were divided into three groups: pre-symptomatic patients, asymptomatic and symptomatic patients.
The scientists then modeled how many cases of coronavirus each group would be responsible for, depending on when they are most infectious.
In most scenarios, pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic people are responsible for at least 50% of new infections, according to the study.
2,100 people have been taken to hospitals during this period; 99 patients deceased, and 5,292 recovered. 23,245 tests have been taken.
Most of the confirmed cases have been observed in Odesa (446), Kyiv (405), Kyiv city (404), Kharkiv (344) and Mykolaiv (327) regions.
1,115,026 people have got sick since the pandemic began in Ukraine; 791,598 recovered.
