    You don't need to clarify. Rt is by it's own definition the average rate of transmission. As the only published values quoted are either national or regional there is no need to specify anything else unless one wished to make up fantasy numbers to prove a point. And no if an infected person met 100 people he would not infect all 100 of them. That is simply not how it works. If it were the whole world would be infected by now.

    Just because it's widely held doesn't make it valid. There's millions of tag along Liverpool fans, they think it's great to attach their soul to the cult. They're wrong, they're cunts.

    well, if 1 person had it then yeah. But this thing doubled every 2-5 days. That 1 person becomes 30m people in 90 days ( based on 4 day doubling) at that point every other person you meet has it.
    Obviously just a mathematical view of it and not really world but proved the point.

    Jesus, if @SWP's back is considered an oldie the rest of us must be on the verge of a place in a care home.

    Out of interest, what’s the age you reach that officially makes you old?
    I thought I was a young pup at 43 :-(

    Any opinion is valid if it’s presented in a sensible way with reasoning attached. Or are opinions only valid to you, as with Karen et al, if they chime with your own ?
