Asymptomatic COVID means person who doesn’t have symptoms of COVID 19. like fever, headache, etc. then also person is got corona positive.
According to the health experts, asymptomatic cases are a huge challenge for any country.
Reason that people have infection of virus but they don’t know about it and infect many others.
1.The guidelines stated Patients under home isolation will discharged after 10 days if patient had no fever for 3 days.
2. The Guidelines for Home Isolation of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases state that
- Patient will advise to isolate at home.
- Self-monitor their health for further seven days.
- There is no need for testing after the home isolation period is over.
3. According to the document, asymptomatic patients those who have mild symptoms can option for home isolation.
4. 24×7 communication must there between the patient and a hospital throughout the entire duration of home isolation.
5.The states and districts should monitor all such cases.
- The health status of those under home isolation.
- The field staff does personal visits.
- Also call centre make follow up of the patients on a daily basis.
The field staff/call centre record clinical status (body temperature, pulse rate and oxygen saturation) .
Asymptomatic COVID patients’ symptoms
However, there are no such listed asymptomatic COVID patient symptoms.
Asymptomatic can transmit the virus as much as the symptomatic patients. symptomatic patients involve people from all age groups.
According to study published in September 22 about 20% of asymptomatic people who test positive for COVID-19 will remain symptom-free over time.
The evolution period can be last for around 14 days. As a result, they end up transmitting the virus to a lot of people.
This fuel the pandemic in a rapid and dangerous manner.
What is an asymptomatic case of COVID-19
An asymptomatic case is infected but does not develop symptoms of COVID-19.
However, they not developed symptoms such as fever, cough or difficulty in breathing.
Such people may deny their infection status or doubt the validity of the test procedures.
As new study state that asymptomatic case of COVID -19 is a “silent carriers” of coronavirus from causing a second wave of infections.

Asymptomatic COVID by age
As consider all age groups are at risk of contracting COVID-19.
An Asymptomatic COVID-19 by age are as follows.
Older Asymptomatic people have a serious risk of developing severe illness. Even children are also at risk of COVID -19.
Nearly 40% of children ages 6 to 13 tested positive for COVID-19, but were asymptomatic.
While the children had no symptoms of COVID-19, they had the same viral load of SARS-CoV-2 in their nasal areas.
This shows that asymptomatic children had the same capacity to spread the virus compared to others who had symptoms of COVID-19.
Asymptomatic COVID percentage
Approximately 59 % asymptomatic COVID people transmit virus who hadn’t yet developed symptoms.
As per the current scenario of COVID estimate 30% of asymptomatic infections are there in India.
Below is the result of COVID tested person in residentials area as follows.
Outcome Of 126 residents tested on 15 March.
- Confirmed case SARS-CoV-2 is 33
- Symptoms at the time of testing is 19 (58%)
- Developed symptoms over follow-up 1 (3%)
- Remained asymptomatic 13 (39%)
- Residents who tested negative 35
The 30-day probability of death among cases was 29%.
Above are the percentage of asymptomatic COVID tests.
Can older people be asymptomatic
Older people may have more health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc
They have less immune power also they get infection fast symptomatic,1 and asymptomatic way.
80 years or older People be asymptomatic it is about 50% Reports show that 8 out of 10 deaths are occurring in individuals they have at least one comorbidity.
comorbidity (means more than one illness or disease occurring in one person at the same time).
What is the Difference between people who have asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic COVID-19?
Both terms refer to people who do not have symptoms.
The difference is that asymptomatic means person who doesn’t develop any symptoms.
While ‘pre-symptomatic’ means people, who have not yet developed symptoms but go on to develop symptoms later.
If you live in a house with people with a COVID-19 infection and you have no symptoms you may be an asymptomatic COVID case.
The evolution period for COVID-19 is on average 5-6 days, however can be up to 14 days. This period, also known as the “pre-symptomatic” period.
Asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic cases symptoms describe to Healthcare workers and public.
The purpose to describe is they observe the public health and social measures.
The person next to them may have infection of corona because they are carrying the virus without knowing.
Therefore, there is need to educate them to protect themselves and others.
Asymptomatic COVID Cases in India and Across the World
- New COVID-19 cases 68,020
- Deaths – 291
- Total cases have reached 1.2 crore
- Total recoveries are now at 1.13 crore.
Only symptomatic people are to be send for Covid-19 test, while asymptomatic people at high-risk.
Asymptomatic COVID -19 percentage is About 80 % in India.
However, an internal analysis by the Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme (IDSP) has concluded after extensive discussions with states.
Almost 40% of all the persons are declare positive across all age groups were found to be asymptomatic, as per the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. (AIIMS)
The researchers say that asymptomatic Covid-19 patients can transmit the deadly new coronavirus to others for an extended period, perhaps longer than 14 days.
Following are the asymptomatic COVID-19 percentage where persons became symptomatic.
Italian -0 %
New York follower -10.3
In the New York follower, the figure might be as low as 3.4 percent because of the presumed diagnosis of endometritis in 2 of the 3 women who developed fevers, the study stated.
Thus, we can conclude that from the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a second individual. and an asymptomatic patient can be high risk.
