India 17th most vulnerable to Coronavirus
According to the mathematical model developed by the researchers from Humboldt University and Robert Koch Institute in Germany, India is the 17th most likely country likely to fall prey to Coronavirus. India has reported 3 coronavirus positive cases.
Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, USA, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Cambodia are the top 10 nations susceptible to Coronavirus. The report identifies air travel as the major source for the spread of the virus. “The busier a flight route, the more probable it is that an infected passenger travels this route. Using these probabilistic concepts, we calculate the relative import risk to other airports. When calculating the import risk, we also take into account connecting flights and travel routes that involve multiple destinations,” it notes.
