Covid-19: 10% are super-spreaders

Statistician Vincent Marmara explained how in addition to the transmission rate, the spread rate, also known as ‘dispersion’, is also being studied in the Covid-19 scenario.

Dr Marmama explained the phenomenon of so-called ‘super spreaders’ because they infected a large number of people. He said that while there are people who infect only one person and sometimes no one, there are others who infect the majority of all those infected.

In fact, it turns out that these ‘super spreaders’ account for 10%, and ended up infecting the remaining 80%. He said this was an important aspect that was being studied.
