President Trump is experiencing mild symptoms of COVID-19, including a cough, congestion, low-grade fever, and fatigue, the New York Times reported Friday.

He’s since been said to be on his way to Walter Reed hospital, but White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the decision was made “out of an abundance of caution.”

According to a new study published in the journal PLOS Medicine, true asymptomatic cases of the novel coronavirus comprise a minority of infections.

The researchers at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and colleagues, maintained that the world is yet to know the full spectrum of the coronavirus and how it gets transmitted.

Authors mentioned in their study that some Covid-19 positive people may experience severe infections that can even lead to viral pneumonia, respiratory distress syndrome, and death. While others demonstrate no symptoms at all and remain completely asymptomatic or have nonspecific symptoms.

The researchers conducted the study to better understand the proportion of asymptomatic people with SARS-CoV-2 who never show any symptoms and the proportion of people who are asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis but develop symptoms later.

For the study, the researchers reviewed the literature of 79 studies that reported empirical data on 6,616 people, 1,287 of

A recent study by researchers from South Korea has shown that children may tend to develop very mild symptoms of the novel coronavirus that are not detectable unless extensive tests are conducted to look for it.

The paper was published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. The researchers speculated that 70 per cent of children demonstrate symptoms that are not detectable. And, doctors miss 93 per cent of such cases, if the focus is on symptomatic cases.

Jong-Hyun Kim of the Catholic University of Korea, Eun Hwa Choi of the Seoul National University College of Medicine, and colleagues reported that there’s “no other good alternative” to extensive testing for early detection of Covid-19 cases.

For the study, researchers examined 91 children under the age of 19 who were tested positive for the virus and were isolated or hospitalised across 22 centres in South Korea between February and March.

Among those with
