They transmit the virus to 159 people, and then infect another 200. The number of new carriers increases with each step. The higher the number, the faster the number of infections.

The breed number crossed 1 for the first time in about a month last Friday, then climbed to 1.02. Last Tuesday, the number rose further to 1.12.
