According to a study of ten million people published in November, asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19 did not occur at all.
The paper is titled “Post-lockdown SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid screening in nearly ten million residents of Wuhan, China” and was published in the scientific journal Nature Communications. Approximately 10 million people were screened between May 14 and June 1, with researchers finding 300 asymptomatic cases. Testing of their 1,174 close contacts revealed 1,174 negative results, no positives, meaning that there was no asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19.
