How This Impacts Us

  • Winter versus Summer Season, Winters with confined spaces experience spikes of 20 to 30% as people remain indoors with others.
  • The percentage of that area fully vaccinated with booster shots (booster shots are 75% effective against this new strain).
  • Whether people are limiting the number of gathers to limit the spread.
  • The number of people covering both their mouth and nose with a mask, lessens the severity of the virus.
  • How much virus the person you come into contact with had.
  • How many people will remain unvaccinated over the next six months globally.
