Approximately half of those infected with coronavirus tolerate the infection without illness or symptoms. This was reported on April 6 by Anthony Fauci, the chief infectious disease officer of the United States.
“The proportion of those who do not have any symptoms is 25-50%,” he said to The New York Times.
He stressed that these are presumptive estimates, not confirmed data, but carriers of the virus without symptoms can infect other people, thus making it more difficult to track the spread of the epidemic.
As of Monday morning, April 6, the United States had the highest number of people infected, with 337,620 infected and 9,643 deceased.
