At the end of December 2019, the first cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection were identified in Wuhan, China. [1] In the following months, the outbreak of SARS-COV-2 infections spreads worldwide [1] As of May 1, 2020, more than 3 million of SARS-CoV-2 infections have been detected worldwide. These data were mainly collected from inpatients. On the other hand, asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic subjects are usually untested for SARS-CoV-2 although they are supposed to far outnumber the symptomatic patients.
