From the data we have, it seems tha it is still rare for people without symptoms (OTG) to actually transmit the virus to secondary individuals,”
World Health Organization (WHO) says Covid-19 patients without geala rarely transmit the virus that infects themselves to others. However, WHO is still studying the allegations.”From the data we have, it seems that it is still rare for people without symptoms to actually transmit the virus to secondary individuals,” explained WHO leader for Covid-19 response, Maria Van Kerkhove, at a virtual press conference on Monday, June 8, 2020.Kerkhove said, WHO had a number of reports from countries that carried out very detailed and detailed contact tracing. They followed cases without symptoms, contact and they found no secondary transmission.”This is very rare and much of it is not published in literature,” Maria said.
However, WHO continues to study the data and seeks more information to answer these questions. Maria also explained that OTG often turns into a case of mild disease.”When we come back and say how many of them are completely without symptoms, we know many of them have very mild diseases,” he said.Infectious disease specialist and epidemiology professor from Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Manisha Juthani, said many people were infected with Covid-19 and were categorized as asymptomatic or had no symptoms, actually had symptoms but were mild or atypical. Can also be categorized at the pre-symptom stage.Pre-symptoms refer to the initial stages of a disease before the disease develops. Whereas asymptomatic might refer to the absence of symptoms at all during infection.
Juthani, who has not yet looked deeper into the WHO report on OTG cases and their spread, said that the findings were not always consistent with other estimates of how corona virus infection can occur in the pre-symptomatic phase. In April, there was a study which stated that the release of the virus could occur two to three days before symptoms appeared.In the other hand, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates in the planning scenario that 40 percent of Covid-19 transmission occurs before people feel sick.”These patients have no symptoms. Instead they spread the disease before it becomes symptomatic. Overall, these findings show that we quarantine and follow the path of symptomatic people, we can make significant pandemic control,” Juthani said, quoted by Al Arabiya .

Become a Part of Human Life
We have a new virus that is entering the human population for the first time, and therefore it is very difficult to predict when we will (be able to overcome it),” said Michael Ryan, WHO Emergency Director.”This virus can be another endemic in our community, and this virus may never disappear,” Michael added through a virtual press conference in Geneva, Switzerland.Michael then likens the SARS-CoV-2 virus to HIV which causes AIDS. This HIV virus can never be lost and has become a part of human life.

Second Wave Can Appear
Meanwhile the WHO also warned that easing restrictions by a number of countries recently would trigger a second wave of Covid-19 transmission.”Some countries choose to relax restrictions with different steps. But we recommend that they remain vigilant at any level,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director General.

Still Far from Normal Life
On the other hand, Michael warned that it was still too early to return to a normal life.Therefore, he urged countries in the world to still impose restrictions or lockdowns .”Some think that the restrictions have worked perfectly and now is the time to relax them,” Michael said.Ryan also condemned the attack on health workers who worked to overcome the pandemic. He said more than 35 incidents belonging to the ‘quite serious’ category were recorded in April alone in 11 countries.
