Asymptomatic spread of viral disease is almost non existent. Now bacteria is another story and there are many well documented cases of people who for whatever reason are carriers of contagious bacterias while having no outward signs of being sick or contagious. Typhoid Marry is a classic example.

Well, bacteria are entirely different creature and are actually alive, so they have that going for them in their ability to survive on/in a host without showing symptoms.

Typhoid Mary picked her ass then prepped food without washing her hands. Asymptomatic spread requires "spread" still. It doesn't spontaneously form in nearby people. If she just washed her hands after shoving them up her rear, her "legend" wouldn't exist, because that would have been enough to stop the spread.

If you're hanging with people who don't regularly explore the inside of their own body with their hands then not wash, it doesn't really matter WHAT they may have, you ain't likely getting it.
