CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – New data from Georgia Tech reveals your risk of exposure to the coronavirus after appearing in a crowd.
According to the new model, if you are in a group of 50 you have an 84% chance of being with someone who is infected in Georgia, and a 98% chance if you live in Arizona. Those percentages turn a little grimmer back home, revealing your risk in South Carolina is nearly 100%.
The data shows your risk of contracting the virus is slightly lower when attending gatherings like dinner parties, which is approximately a 36% chance.
Researchers say the information is based on real-time COVID-19 surveillance data.
