Not sure the full-town testing results agree with this.cases are very rare
A fine-yes. criminal record-no
How do you issue fines to the thousands in the townships not wearing masks and no ID?I think people who don't wear masks should be fined (heavily) not saddled with a criminal record.
Arrests and fines are also a violation of freedoms.South Africans being beaten by their own army and police for refusing to give up their freedoms? Did you like seeing that?
Fascinating. Thank you.
From your same study
So I am not sure if you are for or against masks
Also with regards to asymptomatic patients, I think you guys are getting confused. Asymptomatic patients are patients who show absolutely no symptoms and will not have any symptoms (ever) of COVID although actually being positive for COVID. these patients are very rare since most people who contract COVID will be "presymptomatic" that is may not be showing any symptoms but will get symptoms later on (the symptoms may be mild but they will still get them).
The reason why it is hard to verify if asymptomatic patients can transmit the disease is due to the lack of numbers of actual cases of true asymptomatic patients to actually do the studies on. As an example this study is based on contact tracing and information based solely on one patient (patient A), also I am not sure that this patient was actually true asymptomatic and I think she was presymptomatic because of
shortness of breath is a symptom of COVID - although they may have disregarded it due to her having problems for 16 years however it does not rule out that the worsening of the symptoms were due to COVID.
