New Delhi: In his public address on Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal cited instances of asymptomatic people testing positive for the virus and said of the total 736 samples collected recently in Delhi, 186 were found to be COVID-19 positive and these people didn’t knew that they were carrying the virus he said in his briefing. As asymptomatic cases are difficult to detect, it’s a serious matter of concern for the government.
As per recent findings, more than 80 per cent of people with coronavirus in India are asymptomatic and do not show symptoms of the infection.
Few of the common symptoms of coronavirus are:
- dry cough.
Some people may experience:
- aches and pains.
- nasal congestion.
- runny nose.
- sore throat.
The serious matter of concern is that there may be many asymptomatic people who are yet to be detected and as the time goes by they may be kept on increasing.
As on Monday evening, we have over 17,656 coronavirus active case, including 559 deaths, have been reported from across India.
