  • We study transmission of COVID-19 using five well-documented case studies : a Washington state church choir, a Korean call center, a Korean exercise class, and two different Chinese bus trips. In all cases the likely index patients were pre-symptomatic or mildly symptomatic, which is when infective patients are most likely to interact with large groups of people. An estimate of N 0 , the characteristic number of COVID-19 virions needed to induce infection in each case, is found using a simple… CONTINUE READING
