COVID-19 is spreading more in households than previously thought



According to a new study, COVID-19 is spreading to American households more often than previously thought.

The study, published Friday (October 30th) in the journal Weekly report on morbidity and mortality, involved 191 people in Tennessee and Wisconsin who lived with someone recently diagnosed with COVID-19. Of these, 102 people became infected within seven days of being included in the study, for a “secondary infection rate” of 53%. (The degree of secondary infection is the percentage of exposed people who catch COVID-19 from the first case.)
