How many COVID infections go unnoticed? | COVID-19 Special



A German study has found more than forty percent of people infected with Covid don’t even know. The rate is even higher among elderly people.

And what about Long Covid? Experts say symptoms of the chronic form of the virus may also go unidentified. That could include organ damage, making testing could be more important than ever.

Though Covid-19 was initially understood to be a largely respiratory illness from which most would recover within a few weeks, as the pandemic wore on increasing numbers of people reported experiencing symptoms for months on end. There is no consensus definition of the condition of these people who have symptoms ranging from chronic fatigue to organ damage, let alone a standardized treatment plan. Covid-19 vaccines tend to alleviate the symptoms of long Covid, according to a large survey of more than 800 people that suggests mRNA vaccines, in particular, are beneficial.

  1. I've had covid over ten times now and no records, no vaccines. It hardly effects my life at all. It makes me really lazy though. But it's always gone in a few days. 61 yrs old, Wichita, Kansas.

  2. In the US, lack of employment owing to long-Covid usually means no medical insurance, either.

    WHEN are Americans going to rebel against politicians who receive the "best socialized medicine in the world" for themselves and their families while opposing ANY guaranteed healthcare to their constituents.

  3. So many people have become hypochondriac since Feb 2020.Who needs to check if he might feel 'probably' poorly daily? Well, I don't. When I feel great, I feel great. I only call my physician when I'm poorly and hardly able to get out of bed anymore.

  4. 10% get long covid.
    But we can get re-infected many times for life.
    If this was the lottery I'd be looking at buying a new yacht.

  5. February 2020 while in the Barcelona area I came down with mild flu symptoms. I had my flu shot which had a 50% efficacy that year. So a 50% chance I had mild covid. Covid was circulating at that time and place.
    Was watching the news in Spain. Chinese workers from Wuhan working on a Belt and Road project in Italy were being given a wide berth but the Italian grandmother's were having a hug a Chinese person today program. It didn't work out to well for the Italians from what I observed!

  6. Dear Sir / Madam: There is a vital emergency problem concerned to Oxygen shortage in Myanmar now. Please help the crowed Yangon and Mandalay if you can.

  7. There is a brilliant review of the mRNA vaccine technology by Dr. Drew Weissman (et al) titled "mRNA vaccines — a new era in vaccinology" (2018). If anyone still has questions/anxiety about these vaccines, go straight to the "Safety" section of this paper, it's a really great explanation. Dr. Weismann along with Katalin Karikó are the scientists behind this vaccine technology and will surely get their Nobels in due time.

  8. I am trying to figure this out , I was exposed over and over and over including big parties I don't wear masks unless it was required in public places . Am I immune to this ??? I have no idea . I was tested many times all negative . Anyone else have that experience ? Is there a group like myself who are supposedly immune to Covid ? My doctor thinks I am but I have no clue

  9. Some people just don't want to know. Or don't want to be involved in this manifestation of human stupidity. All these quarantines, all these curfews, nose digging, all these restrictions… just so that this virus spreads anyway.

  10. ASYMPTOMATIC INFECTION AND TRANSMISSION IS A COMPLETE NONSENSE, IT IS MEDICAL FRAUD, THE REASON YOU HAVE NO SYMPTOMS IS BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU, A SIMPLE QUESTION WHEN YOU HAVE HAD A COLD DID YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS?, IF THE ANSWER IS YES YOU HAVE PROVED MY ASSERTION. IT IS MEDICAL FRAUD AND THE NHS SHOULD BE IN COURT FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE,

  11. Why aren't you talking about ways to improve an individual's immune system? Why aren't you talking about Ivermectin and other alternative covid-19 treatments?

  12. If you know then you must have very mild or no symptoms at all. Doesn't that mean you're not sick?
    So infected and not sick, doesn't that mean you've overcome it with your immune system?
    Then it's not as deadly as Chicken Little claimed and continue to claim

  13. Wow! 63% of old people doesn't even have symptoms while infected.
    I
    And as for long Covid for asymptomatic people, that is way off speculation. If that is a concern then it must also be a concern for vaccinated people

  14. My hypothesis is that people who "recovered" from CoVid, but ending up as Longhawlers,
    also have changed their Diet, in order to be healthy and recover.
    Most likely did they changed to a Vegan or Vegetarian diet, because they think it is the
    ultimate and healthiest Diet in the world, which it clearly isn't.
    You will never recover from CoVid on a Vegan Diet,
    it's only my 2 cents, of course.
    Funny, that Doctors never talk about Diet, the most essential "medicine"
    in the world.
    Btw. "Imagine a vaccine so safe that you have to be threatened and bullied to take it;
    to prevent a disease so deadly you have to be tested to see if you have it." …LOL

  15. Follow the money. How much would it cost to test and retest healthy people throughout the world for trace of sickness triggered by "gain of function" biological plagues? Who would receive income generated from mass testing and retesting of the world's healthy people for trace of some variant of infection for which many would smother with their healthy immunoglobulin? How would that narrative treat or cure people who fall sick from "gain of function" biological plagues?
