Thousands of covert coronavirus cases go under the radar in Wuhan, Chinese-led researchers say.
* Study suggests that 59 per cent of infections were asymptomatic or mild enough not to attract medical attention.
* More investigation needed to determine scale and transmission of these cases, scientists say.
Roughly 60 per cent of people who contracted the coronavirus in the central Chinese city of Wuhan were asymptomatic or very mild cases not reported to the authorities, according to a study led by a group of Chinese doctors.
The estimate was based on about 26,000 laboratory-confirmed cases recorded in the city, the first epicentre of the coronavirus, between December and February, and was published on the medRxiv preprint platform early this month.

The South China Morning Post reported earlier that, according to classified government data, over one-third of laboratory-confirmed cases in China were silent carriers who were either asymptomatic or presymptomatic. By February 29, authorities had recorded more than 43,000 silent carriers, who had tested positive but did not show symptoms.

1/3 cases in China are unlisted SILENT Carriers, tested positive but no symptoms. Proof that Covid-19 will likely become a common flu but with around 1% death rate.

最新消息:在中国,有1/3的病例是未列出的静音载体,经检测呈阳性但无症状。证明Covid-19可能会成为普通流感的证据,但是死亡率约为1%。

根据机密的政府数据,在中国超过三分之一的实验室确诊病例是无症状或无症状的无症状携带者。到2月29日,当局已记录了超过43,000名无声携带者,他们对POSITIVE进行了测试,但没有出现症状。
