• Can COVID-19 be caught from a person who has no symptoms?


    ○ The main way the disease spreads is through inhaling respiratory droplets expelled by someone who is coughing or contact. The risk of catching COVID-19 from someone with no symptoms at all is very low. However, many people with COVID-19 experience only mild symptoms, which is why it is possible to catch COVID-19 from someone who has little to no symptoms.

    ○ WHO is assessing ongoing research on the period of transmission of COVID-19 and will share updated findings.
