Food For Thought: COVID-19 What makes some people asymptomatic
50-80% of people infected with the “novel’ coronavirus causing COVID-19 are not symptomatic or mildly so, why? What makes them asymptomatic as opposed to those who require a ventilator and die?
Widespread antibody and antigen testing may hold the answer to that question.
Do asymptomatic patients have a lower viral load or exposure to the coronavirus?
Do asymptomatic patients have more aggressive immune systems? Their immune systems immediately identify and attack the virus during the incubation period, so symptoms do not develop.
Are there other explanations?
We are at the beginning of a new war with a highly contagious, deadly viruses, shouldn’t we be petrified of touching anyone because they could be asymptomatic carriers? And shouldn’t we know who these people are?
Widespread antibody and antigen testing hold the keys to return to living life.
