Largest COVID-19 contact tracing study to date finds children key to spread, evidence of superspreaders
🚨Large study of >500,000 people in #India exposed to the #coronavirus found: ▶️Viral spread is driven by a small % of "superspreaders" ▶️Children & young adults are much more important to viral spread—especially within households—than previously reported
The largest #COVID19 contact tracing study to date – led by #PrincetonU researchers – found that children and young adults were found to be potentially much more important to transmitting the virus than previous studies have identified:

'Largest COVID-19 contact tracing study to date finds children key to spread, evidence of superspreaders.' Ik zou heel graag je review over deze studie zien
The largest #COVID19 contact tracing study to date - conducted by #PrincetonU researchers - found that "superspreading events are the rule rather than the exception when one is looking at the spread of #COVID19."
"Children and young adults — who made up one-third of COVID cases — were especially key to transmitting the virus in the studied populations."
Science is simply weird "Kids are very efficient transmitters in this setting” This makes no sense from what we have seen in nearly all other schools around the world & multiple systematic reviews #COVID19

This is quite striking on Covid spread: “researchers found that 71% of infected individuals did not infect any of their contacts, while a mere 8% of infected individuals accounted for 60% of new infections.”
