HARRISBURG, Pa. (WPMG) – Medical officials have officially ruled the R-nought value of novel COVID-19 to be below 1.00, a mathematical formula created to measure the spread of infectious diseases.
On Monday morning, new data indicated almost every state in the United States is now capable of reopening safely, according to the CDC history of infectious diseases.
The Pennsylvania surge of cases happened on April 9th, and has since continued to drop.
A second spike had occurred on April 23rd, but the R-nought value continues to drop.
Allegheny County had no deaths of COVID-19 for over 24-hours.
The R-nought value of the H1N1 virus was 1.46 in 2009, which made it twice as infectious as COVID-19.
