Doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov stated that the most dangerous are infected people in the early days of the disease.
According to the doctor, asymptomatic carriers are often confused with people in the first stage of the disease.
“People are infected from patients who do not yet have clinical symptoms. That is, the virus replicates most strongly in the nasopharynx 2-3 days before the onset of symptoms. But these people cannot be called asymptomatic carriers, they are rather “pre-symptomatic”. People are most contagious in the first days of the disease, “he said. OSN.
The expert also added that it is premature to speak with 100% certainty that asymptomatic carriers are safe.
Formerly Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor of Moscow State University Alexey Agranovsky warned Russians that those who have had coronavirus remain carriers of the infection, being already healthy, and can get sick a second time when there are fewer antibodies in the body.
