(TacticalNews.com) – As the world seems to be getting past the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more information is being discovered about the virus. The World Health Organization (WHO), which has received a heavy dose of criticism for its handling of the coronavirus, just updated its data on the virus once again.

In the early days of the pandemic, it was said that the virus spread through person-to-person contact, whether or not a person showed symptoms. New evidence suggests that, while asymptomatic patients can still potentially infect healthy people, it’s very rare.
This could prove to be a problem as many countries, including the US, have attempted to trace both asymptomatic and symptomatic people, including their contacts.
Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of the World Health Organization’s zoonosis unit, told reporters at the UN’s Geneva headquarters that governments should focus on tracking and isolating people who show symptoms. She added that governments should also be tracking those who’ve come in contact with symptomatic people.
