Stay at Home and Save Lives

Life Excel - Coronavirus - Covid-19

If you don't think this applies to you, please read on...

If you ignore social distancing guidelines and go out to the beach, local beauty spot or park...

If you have, or are carrying, Covid-19, the law of averages say you will very likely pass it on to 3 other people.

Within 5-6 days, those 3 people will each pass on Covid-19 to 3 more people... 

We're now on 9 infections.

Within another 5-6 days, those 9 people will each pass it onto 3 more people...

We're now on 27 infections.

And so this continues.

Let me summarise...

Day 1 - 3 Infections...

Day 6 - 9 infections...

Day 11 - 27 infections...

Day 16 - 81 infections...

Day 21 - 243 infections...

Day 26 - 729 infections...

Day 31 - 2187 infections...

Day 36 - 6561 infections...

Day 41 - 19 683 infections...

Day 46 - 59 049 infections...

Day 51 - 177 147 infections.

In less than 2 months!

That, of course is based on the worst case scenario... with no social distancing.

And the best possible scenario...

If you, and everyone else follow social distancing...

That cycle doesn't even begin...

ZERO infections!

Or it's massively reduced.

For instance, if each person massively restricts their time outside and only passes Covid-19 to 1 other person, the number of infections at day 51 would be...

11.

Yes... 11 infections!

If you were just a bit careless, and each person passed it onto 2 people, by day 51, we'd have...

2048 infections.

You can make a difference.

You can play your part.

Stay at home...

Protect the NHS...

Save Lives.

Take care and stay safe.
