Cases can rise drastically without social distancing – GMOA

The number of COVID-19 infected patients can increase drastically by April 8 if people do not follow the instructions issued by the Health authorities and the Government, Government Medical Officers’ Association Media Spokesman Dr. Samantha Ananda said.

According to Dr. Ananda, it is possible that at the moment around 500 COVID-19 infected people without any symptoms are freely moving about.

Another nineteen thousand (19,000) of our population may have been exposed to this disease condition, and they are now under the observation of Medical, Military, and Administrative structures, he said.If movement freely takes place (no social distancing), one individual can infect nearly 500 others within 30 days; in 50 percent social distancing, one individual can infect 15 others, thus by 75 percent social distancing, the ability to infect others is only 2.5 per one infected person within 30 days, he added.
