The global rate of transmission of R number is reported between 2.5 – 3.5. This means 1 affected person will spread the virus to 2.5 or 3.5 people and so on. The lockdown and curfew have helped the Kingdom to bring the R down and continuous measures will keep this number further down. Countries, where R is close to 0, means the rate is not widely present in the society or safer regions.

However, we are not done yet. This is all upto us to further bring this rate down with the help and advice of Health Ministry. Together, we can fight this virus.
