A Study Shows That COVID-19 Spreads Much More Often In Homes Than Previously Thought by Researchers
November 04, 2020
According to recent studies published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for households in Tennessee and Wisconsin, the coronavirus spreads faster inside families and homes than previously thought since 51% of people residing with an infected individual contracted the virus themselves.
Additionally, they found that at least 75% of secondary infections occurred within five days when living with the first person who was initially infected was at home experiencing symptoms.
The researchers said, "In the absence of an efficient approach for identification of infections without regard to symptoms, these findings suggest that prompt adoption of isolation measures as soon as a person feels ill might reduce the probability of household transmission."
