Using today’s numbers for Orange and Osceola counties in Central Florida, I calculate you need to run into 440 people to find 1 person actively infected with COVID-19!
Additionally, I think that number is overly generous.
Those who are symptomatic with COVID-19 will likely be staying home. Your risk of exposure is to those who are infected but not yet symptomatic. To run into someone who meets those criteria, you need to brush shoulders with many more people here in Orlando.
Using the previous 7 days to project forward:
We had a total of 1500 new cases over the last 7 days. If last weeks COVID-19 infection rate remained steady, you would need to run into 1550 people in Orlando to find 1 person who could possibly share their infection with you.
Keep washing your hands, wearing your masks, and staying 6 ft away from others, and we will keep this pandemic in check!
