I think I understand the concept of Ro. If I have the virus then it will be expected that I will infect a certain number of people. My question is this: what is the percentage of people I meet that will be infected. Obviously, if I meet no one, then I infect no one. What if I meet 10 people? 20 people...100 people...1,000 people etc etc.
