The public places where the coronavirus is most likely to be transmitted are recorded by a research from Great Britain.

The study by SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies) was presented to the government. It includes a classification of public places where coronavirus is most likely to spread.

The research contains surprises. The most dangerous point for someone to catch a coronavirus is when they shop in stores, while the next thing is to exercise in the open air.

The researchers came to their conclusions after analyzing 10.000 results from participants in England and Wales, who answered questions about their weekly habits between September and November 21.

Risk rates for each "dangerous" public space

Stores: Those who went to the store more than once a week were 2,2% more likely to get coronavirus. Sports: The second most dangerous activity (1,36%), but this, according to experts, may be due to the fact that often sports were accompanied by social activities, such as then meeting an acquaintance / friend in places such as pubs.

Entertainment centersGoing to a pub, bar or club once a week puts people at a 1,3% higher risk of catching a coronavirus.

Party: Risk at a rate of 1,27%

Public transport: Those who used them frequently were 1,2% more likely to get stuck Covid-19 compared to those who did not. However, there was some variation between modes of transport: 1,3% risk for buses, 1,2% for the London Underground, 1,19% for taxis and 1,18% for trams.

What changes with the dominance of Omicron

The SAGE data gathered from the study was given to the government ahead of a meeting on the coronavirus on December 23rd, in order to decide on any further restrictions. However, the data did not fall on the table, according to the British media, as they were collected before the rapid spread of Omicron mutation cases began.

Given the escalation of "O" in recent months, the results are expected to have varied significantly. However, cases have begun to decline in the last two days in the UK, suggesting that the current wave may have reached its peak.
