EurekAlert: Students returning home may have caused 9,400 secondary COVID-19 infections across UK

EurekAlert: Students returning home may have caused 9,400 secondary COVID-19 infections across UK. “As the study does not consider transmission to the students’ wider home communities or include the journey home – which may give rise to a larger number of cases, particularly if public transport is taken – the numbers are a lower bound on the likely impact of transmissions and new cases. However, although the indicative levels of secondary infections are potentially very large, multiple strategies can be adopted to help reduce the number of students taking Covid-19 home, the authors say.”
