The World Health Organisation revealed that each person infected with coronavirus can contaminate between two and 2.5 people. 

Professor Hugh Montgomery, director of the Institute for Human Health and Performance at University College London, told Channel 4 News that the current outbreak is three times deadlier than flu. 

He said: “This coronavirus is very, very infectious, so every person passes to it three, now that doesn’t sound like much of a difference.

“But if each of those three pass it to three and that happens in 10 layers, I have been responsible for infecting 59,000 people.”
