For weeks upon weeks now, Americans have been forced to hear about coronavirus. Health officials claimed that everyone should wear face masks and social distance; the assertion of COVID-19 spreading via asymptomatic transmission was used to justify the aforementioned measures.
Anyone who dared to question the narrative was subsequently labeled as selfish and evil. Those who found fault with the reactions to coronavirus were also vilified and told that they didn’t care about the elderly.
Now, new information has come out and confirmed the suspicions that so many people have maintained about coronavirus. Per the World Health Organization, the asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19 is “very rare,” reports Breitbart News.
What to Know About the Latest News on Coronavirus
Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove from the World Health Organization reported yesterday that it’s “very rare” for asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 to spread the virus.
This new development arrives after contact tracing and observation of coronavirus transmission. It goes without saying that this latest information flies in the face of preliminary claims that asymptomatic individuals are the main spreaders of COVID-19.
Transmission of the coronavirus by asymptomatic people is “very rare,” says the WHO's Maria Van Kerkhove, contradicting a widely held belief among health officials and researchers

In light of the most recent news on coronavirus, this raises major questions about the merits of face mask-wearing and social distancing. Both of these measures were recommended and implemented on the basis that coronavirus is contagious, even amongst those who show no symptoms of the virus.
We now know better. We also know that the government’s decision to crash the economy and put tens of millions of people out of work was all for nothing.
Not only is coronavirus transmission via asymptomatic means “very rare,” but the virus itself has a recovery rate surpassing 99%. Likewise, 80% of all COVID-19 cases are mild.
