STUDIES:

Viral Shedding and Clinical Illness in Naturally Acquired Influenza Virus Infections (2010)
Excerpt: “It is still unknown whether or to what degree asymptomatic individuals could transmit infection to others, although mathematical models typically assume that 33%–50% of infections are asymptomatic or subclinical, and these individuals are approximately half as infectious as symptomatic persons. Our results suggest the possibility that “silent spreaders” (ie, individuals who are infectious while asymptomatic or presymptomatic) may be less important in the spread of epidemics than was previously thought.”
