Two interesting charts on Covid

This is data on Covid spread in India. Fascinating data.
1. 70% of Covid patients did not spread the virus to ANYBODY. On the other hand, 10% of Covid patients caused 60% of the spread of virus.

2. The second one is even more fascinating. It is the young adults who are spreading the virus most (I assume that is because they tend to be more social and gather in groups?). And people tend to spread to other people of similar age as their own (I assume because people tend to congregate with folks of similar age group)

    Very interesting data – but how did they track such patterns? Methodology is unclear and I’m skeptical. Gotta find the source to better understand

      The source is stated on the right bottom of the page. To be sure, I did not study the source – just the output as presented in The Economist.
