Reproductive number Re

Source: FOPH – Status: 14.05.2021, 07.54h

The effective reproductive number (Re) indicates how many people an infected person infects on average under the current conditions. If the number is less than 1, there will be fewer new infections. If the number is greater than 1, the virus is spreading more intensely. In order to curb the spread of the virus, the reproductive number must be less than 1.
