Anyone able to answer this? We know that the biggest issue and allowable factor in this viruses transmission are two factors 1). The virus is infectious prior to the person who has it knowing that they have it 2). That their are individuals who are asymptomatic and as such get no symptoms from the virus and as such become super infectors. Now my understanding of how our immune system works is that typically a lot of the symptoms you get from viruses are a direct result of your body fighting off the infection. Once the virus is gone the symptoms typical pass and in most cases your body retains a degree of immunity through produced anti-bodies. So how does this work for asymptomatic individuals. If they are experiencing no side effects from the virus, then doesn't that mean their body isn't doing anything to fight the virus off? So do they just have the virus forever or does it just mean they are lucky enough to have an immune response that does not result in any symptoms?
