This leads to my question for the "experts" on the panel:
If a Covid-19 patient is detected by testing, even when they may be asymptomatic, and treatment is started then, is that of any benefit to obtain favorable Treatment results? (versus waiting until they are obviously ill & testing then to confirm the Dx).

There is no specific treatment. All treatment is supportive, based on symptoms. A symptomatic patients would not be treated, but should be isolated and have their contacts tested.

Remdisivir and convalescent serum seem to shorten the course of illness in the sickest folks. It is not clear at this point that they decrease mortality.
