    Here is a meta-analysis of 54 studies including 77k participants on household spread (so masks aren’t a factor) that illustrates asymptotic spread is virtually non existent.

    Results  A total of 54 relevant studies with 77 758 participants reporting household secondary transmission were identified. Estimated household secondary attack rate was 16.6% (95% CI, 14.0%-19.3%), higher than secondary attack rates for SARS-CoV (7.5%; 95% CI, 4.8%-10.7%) and MERS-CoV (4.7%; 95% CI, 0.9%-10.7%). Household secondary attack rates were increased from symptomatic index cases (18.0%; 95% CI, 14.2%-22.1%) than from asymptomatic index cases (0.7%; 95% CI, 0%-4.9%), to adult contacts (28.3%; 95% CI, 20.2%-37.1%) than to child contacts (16.8%; 95% CI, 12.3%-21.7%), to spouses (37.8%; 95% CI, 25.8%-50.5%) than to other family contacts (17.8%; 95% CI, 11.7%-24.8%), and in households with 1 contact (41.5%; 95% CI, 31.7%-51.7%) than in households with 3 or more contacts (22.8%; 95% CI, 13.6%-33.5%).

      These number of  deaths due from Covid that’s reported is absolutely totally wrong!  I know of at least 10 people who died from heart attacks, strokes, cancer amd even on the news one died from being shot and murdered and all their death certificates said cause of death was Covid because they get thousands if death certificate said cause of death was Covid! Don’t anybody tell me this is a lie because I know this for a fact. 2 were very good friends of mines fathers. And all the others were my clients family and they were all horribly upset over it. And as far as spreading it being asymptotic has also been studied and it was maybe 4% and then couldn’t be proved that it wasn’t picked up on a surface rather than someone being asymptotic. Just my 2 cents of actual friends family members and my own studying  on the asymptotic aspect.
