Covid-19 Trends in South Africa
To find out how fast Covid-19 is spreading, we can calculate the Effective Reproduction Number (Rt) as the pandemic progresses. This number tells us, on average, how many people each infected person is likely to infect.
For as long as Rt is above 1, the virus is spreading rapidly. The challenge is to get Rt below 1 to stop the spread.
My analytics website provided up to date Rt charts for the country and provinces.
