Woman with no coronavirus symptoms infected 5 relatives

Feb 24, 2020 12:46 IST

A 20-year-old Chinese woman from Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, infected five relatives, without ever showing signs of infection, Chinese scientists reported, offering new evidence that the virus can be spread asymptomatically. The case study has now been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association and suggests why it may be difficult to contain the spread of the novel virus. Surprisingly, the woman tested negative for the virus initially, while she unknowingly spread the virus, and only a follow-up test was positive.
