The survey conducted on the 6th and 7th of May. Reveals that out of every 100 people in the community, there are 12 cases who do not have any symptoms. That means that if you are in a room with 100 people around you, with none of them showing any symptoms of COVID-19, the likelihood is that 12 of them who appear perfectly normal, are in fact infected and showing no symptoms.
This is why you must take precautions, even when you can’t see any danger.
