These are the places Covid-19 spreads in the real world:

🖥Workplaces
🍽Restaurants
⛪️Churches
🎈Parties

It doesn't really spread here:

🌳Public parks
🏖Beaches
🛒Quick trips to the grocery store

Scientists are starting to get a handle on how the novel coronavirus behaves. We now know that the two drivers of the spread of the disease are:

1) Close contact
2) Crowding in closed space

You've probably heard that each infected individual transmits the virus to between two and three others on average.

But the important point, which is often missed, is that this is just an average

In the real world, most people transmit the disease to nobody, and a minority infect many others in super-spreading events.

Only 9% of infected people are responsible for 80% of the transmissions

People think if you get exposed, you'll automatically get sick or become infectious, but that's not always the case.

Even people exposed to sick family members in their homes donít always get sick https://t.co/LyScwtM7Sd https://t.co/I7STH6sUvt




People passing by you in a supermarket are unlikely to infect you. ⛅️Outdoor environments appear much safer as well.

In one study, which followed hundreds of cases, all but one transmission occurred indoors https://t.co/LyScwtuwtD https://t.co/H4nvuwlnxX

1. Thanks. Valuable. Should be widely disseminated

working indoors with somebody, or several somebodies, for 9 hours -- yes, (or at least much greater chance)
walking by somebody on the sidewalk -- probably not

surface contact transmission -- needs more study

3. Opening schools would seem...

problematic, then.
