Did you actually listen to the video and not simply read the tweet that


flat out does not match what was said? The person in the video said asymptomatic transmission is rare. I don't know how anyone gets:

The #WorldHealthOrganization made a complete U turn and said that #coronavirus patients doesn't need to be isolated or quarantined. No #SocialDistancing and it cannot even transmit from one patient to another.

from that. Do you believe that the video says that the virus cannot transmit from one patient to another? Also please note that asymptomatic and presymptomatic are not interchangeable. See the link below for more. I appreciate the opportunity for me to educate you yet again. You're learning so much!

Edit: Added another link that actually appears to address the video in question which does not seem to be "the latest" unless you consider "the latest" as almost a month ago. This is what I mean about you taking anything that fits your viewpoint as gospel and doing no research at all.

Relevant quote:

"In an attempt to clean up the mess, Van Kerkhove appeared in a live Q&A on social media Tuesday morning.

Right at the start, she said she wanted to clarify her previous comments and began with:

“We do know that some people who are asymptomatic or some people who don’t have symptoms can transmit the virus on. What we need to better understand is how many of the people in the population don’t have symptoms and, separately, how many of those individuals go on to transmit to others.”

She went on to say that in her answer yesterday, she was referencing only “two or three” studies using contact tracing. “That’s a very small subset of studies,” she admitted.

“And in that [context], I used the phrase ‘very rare.’ I think that that’s misunderstanding [sic] to state that asymptomatic transmission globally is very rare. What I was referring to was a subset of studies [that say that] when we follow asymptomatic cases, it is very rare—and I used the phrase very rare—that we found a secondary transmission.”"


BTW still waiting on you to explain your point about American citizens going to American hospitals. I've asked four times with no response. So for the fifth time:

So again what exactly was the point of this statement:

"Are there currently great numbers of infected crossing the southern border into the general US population? Yes. All border states are seeing this. Why?"
