The director of Epidemiology at the Ministry of Public Health, Dr. Ronald Skewes says 65% of persons that test positive for Covid-19 are asymptomatic. He stresses the importance of wearing facial masks, keeping physical distance and avoiding gatherings.



While testing is usually carried out after a person shows some symptoms, people that undergo routine testing frequently test positive. Such is the case of the director of the National Police, for instance.



Andrew Azman, an infectious-disease epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, told Nature magazine that there is a lower risk of transmission from asymptomatic people, but these present a significant public-health risk because they are more likely to be out in the community than isolated at home.

Do any of you even realize that you can easily catch COVID through the EYES ? and we don't even know what percentage , there are no such stats

Are you all wearing Eye Protection every day along with your mask, every time you go out ?.

and Yes ,this comes from " Medical Experts" ( for the trolls here who insist on arguing every single point )

you have been lied to ,, please face reality .
Hopefully these Vaccines put an end to this Insanity and division .

Who did the study and where’s the link to it?

If its Raining SIDEWAYS , and you have your Umbrella, guess what , you STILL get wet ..

No Link found in Google needed .

How come Doctors and Nurses have been wearing surgical masks for over a hundred years? Don't waste you time arguing with these idiots, they follow one guy who is history in a few weeks.......................
What does Politics have to do with Medical FACTS ? ..

Today ( not 100 years ago) they wear N95 + Face shield, + additional protection

Cheap Masks alone , in Public , is nothing but Feel good

Sort of like wearing a Bullet Proof Vest u purchased on Ebay ,, and then willingly walking into automatic Gun Fire .
what part of this is confusing ?
I am still trying to understand how a mask is protecting someone if The virus can get inside your body through your eyes, and between the fibers of your worthless 20 cent mask ..

Please explain it to us , we want to learn more

Anyone confused about mask wearing at this point lives in the state of confusion and has no interest in understanding.
Posts amount to attention seeking behavior.

I believe this is the study he's referencing.
A poorly run study with inconclusive results.

"Limitation:
Inconclusive results, missing data, variable adherence, patient-reported findings on home tests, no blinding, and no assessment of whether masks could decrease disease transmission from mask wearers to others."

"Garbage in, garbage out"

Oh my dear Michael, after you put me on ignore yesterday, I was devastated. Imagine my surprise to discover that you are, in fact, reading my posts and responding to them. Thank you Michael, I don't know what I did to get back into your good graces, but I can't tell you how happy I am that we are once again communicating. Have a wonderful day Michael and I look forward to many more productive exchanges with you. Hugs from Canada xoxoxo

Question for Dolores: Why are the anti-maskers and conspiracy theorists allowed to repeatedly pollute the threads with their "opinions"? It detracts from what one might hope and even assume to be the tone and seriousness of this forum. Thanks.
I might also ask why such bullying and badgering is allowed, as below? Is this the message you want DR1 to project? Thanks.
