Social distancing: the numbers game.

Social distancing: the numbers game.


By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems

If you had two dollars and could double it as often as you wanted, how many times would you need to double your original "deuce" to reach a million?
Just nineteen times.
So how does that apply to social distancing? This is how. If someone is infected by the COVID-19 virus, they will be symptom free for several days, if not longer. If they interact with and infect just two people, and those two don't conduct social distancing (staying away from other people) and also interact with two people and so on and so on, over one million people will eventually come down with the disease in just 19 social interactions. Here's a chart from a UK website that tells it better than I ever could.

Got it?
Stay home!
