The size and frequency of social gatherings is starting to increase in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, plenty of questions remain unanswered. After reading a recent publication, I am starting to gain some confidence in three important conclusions:
- Nasal swab samples (tested via RT-PCR) is currently the only accurate testing method.
- The majority of people with Covid-19 are likely asymptomatic
- Covid-19 is a virus that spreads rapidly even with appropriate quarantine measures in place.
