Abstract

Clinical characteristics of 33 asymptomatic COVID-19 infections were analyzed in this study. The data showed most of asymptomatic patients had small body mass index, good prognosis and low infectivity. This study suggests that screening from high-risk populations to find and isolate asymptomatic patients is an important disease prevention and control strategy for COVID-19.
