Topic: R0 value

Telangana has highest Covid ‘R’ value of 1.69, India’s overall figure now 1.11

India’s ‘R’ value declined from 1.13 on 20 June to 1.11 until 26 June. Delhi’s ‘R’ value, which has been consistently erratic, has reduced to below 1.26 until 26 June.

India’s ‘R’ for Covid remains almost unchanged — at 1.12 this week from 1.13 last week

At this value, total active cases are likely to cross 2.5 lakh by 4 July, said Sitabhra Sinha, a researcher at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

India’s ‘R’ dips to 1.13, active Covid cases could now be 2.5 lakh instead of 3.5 lakh by 4 July

The ‘R’ number, a measure for how many people can be infected by one person, has declined after remaining at 1.22 for about a month.

India’s ‘R’ value steady at 1.23 despite easing of lockdown restrictions

The resumption of some train services and domestic flights has not led to an increase in the effective reproduction number.

Is the R number still useful? It can’t be the sole guide to coronavirus policies

Because of coronavirus pandemic, we have all heard of the R0 — it is the reproduction number of an infectious disease. But is it a suitable metric?

Reproduction rate is the coronavirus number that is worth watching

Tracked closely across states, this number can help calculate which practices and scenarios have the biggest effect in tackling the coronavirus.

India’s ‘R’ value falls to 1.22, but active Covid-19 cases could reach 1 lakh by 30 May

The ‘R’ number, which stands for how many people can be infected by one person, has declined after remaining at 1.29 for a couple of weeks.

World is talking in R0 values and infection rates, but coronavirus doesn’t care for such data

Averages are useful, to know where we're at in dealing with the pandemic, but there will be further flare-ups, easily large enough to overwhelm local resources.

Prannoy Roy in Abu Dhabi

You can call NDTV elitist, anglicised. But it defended democracy, gave us Ravish Kumar

In all these years of covering elections on NDTV, I do not recall a single occasion when I was asked or even hinted to say or not say something. I disagreed with Prannoy Roy off-screen and on-screen and that was never a problem.

A Gujarat gamble: A likely reason Rahul is not giving Modi a fight this assembly election

I'd rather not buy idea that Rahul's holding his fire until 2024. More likely, Congress believes Karnataka offers best chance of winning a Gujarat-sized state if Gujarat is too challenging.
