How infectious is this #omicronvariant? The #Rnaught number is a decent gauge. #R0 predicts how many people ONE person can infect. #Deltavariant: 8-9 people #Measles: 18 people #Omicronvariant: About 50! We still have more questions than answers now. @PaulaReidCNN @DavidSiegel

How can we already determine that number is 50? We can't. Stop jumping the data gun.
