    The following study characteristics were considered when estimating the proportion of asymptomatic infections: study period, study population, country, SARS-CoV-2 infection definition, asymptomatic case definition and follow-up period. 2.2. Search Strategy: We searched PubMed, Embase, medRxiv and Google Scholar on 10 September 2020 and 1 March 2021 using keywords COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, 2019-nCoV, coronavirus disease 2019 AND asymptomatic.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
