Social Distancing May Reduce COVID-19 Spread By Up To 99%

Quarantining infected people and their families, closing schools and businesses and social distancing were most effective.

Because little is known about the transmissibility of COVID-19, researchers used data from the 2004-05 SARS outbreak.
