The number of people who are super contagious is even higher. He said, “The new coronavirus is spread through droplets, which means that it will spread to the greatest extent in some social situations.


If a person does not maintain social distance, does not wear a mask, and squeezes the subway, goes to work, hugs and kisses other people during the illness, then the chance of this person becoming a super communicator is very high, and he can infect a large group of people. .

In other words, he himself ignored the social distancing regulations to make it possible for the virus to achieve super spread. “Semenov said, “Unfortunately, the contribution of super spreaders to the spread of the virus in the population is still considerable. “
