Scratch that: Now they’re saying Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) has an R0 as high as 7.05

(Natural News) The reproduction rate (R0) of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) – meaning the number of other people that one infected person could potentially spread it to – has been steadily rising over the past several months. Early on, it was in the 1.0-2.0 range. Then, it changed to as high as 6.6. Now, the latest science says we’ve breached 7.05.

In other words, one infected person infects seven other people, who then collectively infect 49 other people, who then infect 343 other people, who then infect 2,401 people, and on and on it goes.
The R0 figure is important because it’s a measure of how exponentially a virus can begin to spread. A lower R0 basically means that a virus isn’t going to spread out of control, while a higher R0 suggests that everyone needs to get prepared for a major global pandemic – and the latter seems to be where the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) is headed.
