From: Could asymptomatic carriers spread the SARS-CoV-2 infection? Experience from the Italian second wave

  Asymptomatic (n = 80) Symptomatic (n = 50) 95% CI p-value
RdRP/S mean Ct (range) 32.11 (16.3–38.7) 27.64 (16–38.2) –6.546 to –2.382  < 0.0001
N mean Ct (range) 31.39 (12.9–38.2) 27.71 (16–37.7) –5.803 to –1.556 0.0008
E mean Ct (range) 31.49 (17.1–38) 27.03 (15–38) –6.524 to –2.411  < 0.0001
  1. Mean real time PCR Ct data related to 80 asymptomatic subjects (45 males, 35 females, median age 38.3, range 6–91) and 50 symptomatic subjects (24 males, 26 females, median age 46.7, range 6–96)
