COVID-19 newsletter

Published: 29/06/2020

Dear freedivers, 


Please find a new AIDA International COVID-19 newsletter, prepared by the Medical & Science Committee of AIDA International.

By June 24, The World Health Organization reported a total of 9 296 202 cases cases (167 056) in last 24 hours and 479 133 deaths (5 336 by June 24). By the WHO there are still several places in the world that have not reported cases of COVID-19. Many of them are in the Pacific. American Samoa, Cook Islands, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Pitcairn Island, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tokelau, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Wallis and Futuna are still virus-free.

According the presented infographics COVID-19 started to lead in the Global Deaths Due to Various Causes

A review of several COVID-19 study cohorts indicates that around 40–45% of people who contract the new coronavirus do not show symptoms. Whether they pass on the virus is not entirely clear, but the study authors suggest that it is likely.  “Asymptomatic persons can transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others for an extended period, perhaps longer than 14 days.”. They also suggest that people who remain asymptomatic may nevertheless experience damage to their lungs as a result of the virus.

Please pay attention on the height level of the asymptomatic cases.


We wish you stay safe and healthy.
