Queensland COVID-19 research

  • A systematic review and meta-analysis that estimated the extent of asymptomatic COVID-19 and its potential for community transmission

    September 2021

    Knowing the prevalence of true asymptomatic coronavirus disease cases is critical for designing mitigation measures against the pandemic. This study aimed to synthesise all available research on asymptomatic cases and transmission rates. By screening over 2000 articles, the researchers found that their one-in-six estimate of the prevalence of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases and asymptomatic transmission rates is lower than those of many highly publicized studies but still sufficient to warrant policy attention. Further robust epidemiological evidence is urgently needed, including in subpopulations such as children, to better understand how asymptomatic cases contribute to the pandemic.
