Not really true. It's common to pass on flu before you exhibit any symptoms through talking alone. Don't need to be coughing or sneezing. Not sure what the answer is here but saying that everyone will be ok because kids are generally asymptomatic seems weird to me. If asymptomatic kids didn't spread it you wouldn't have empty classrooms because everyone has it.L
However testing asymptomatic people - otherwise known as healthy - really has to stop. Research suggests up to a third of flu cases are asymptomatic, and it wasn't something we ever cared too much about - as asymptomatic people don't really spread diseases. That's mostly coughs and sneezes.
