Key Findings
For COVID-19 there are no published data to identify optimal population sampling methods, however, a population-based sample in which testing is performed for both rt-PCR and serology might be recommended. There are also opportunities to examine innovative sampling strategies being used in pilot studies underway in other jurisdictions.

Key Findings
Low grade evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 may persist within a population and lead to recrudescent outbreaks in winter months which may include the re-infection of previously infected individuals. · Population monitoring by means of repeated cross-sectional surveys and/or longitudinal cohort studies is strongly advised by WHO

Key Findings
COVID-19 is primarily transmitted by symptomatic patientsand presymptomatic individuals.·Moderate grade evidence estimates that approximately 20% of COVID-19 transmission may bedue to that from presymptomatic individuals.However, estimates range from 6.4% -47%.·Asymptomatic individuals and environmental contaminationappear to contributelessto disease transmission,with estimated proportionsof 6% and 10%, respectivelyfrom modelling studies
