Researchers say that 25 to 50 percent of people with COVID-19 are unaware that they have the virus (without symptoms – asymptomatic).
The threat that this imposes on both the community and workplace, is the inability to detect and isolate individuals. They are asymptomatic (without any symptoms) and have the ability to be spreading the virus to others.
The important thing is, when a person gets the virus, they may incubate it for about 0 to 5-7 days. The current Polymerase Chain Reaction [PCR] test involves a swab of the nose or back of the throat. There is also a window of time where the PCR will detect the virus which goes up to about 10 days then it starts to drop off. After that period, the virus moves down the airways into the lungs and body and is no longer detectable in the back of the nose or throat. That is a 0 to 10-day window for virus detection.
