Looking at all of the information we have, Dr. Arnot discusses successful mitigation strategies. Our current R naught value is 3.8, meaning for every infected person we have, they are then passing the virus to an additional 3 people. But, if we quarantine at home, we can bring that R value down to 1.2. Centralized quarantine is the only effective measure proven at the end of March 2020 that may bring the R naught value down to <1 where the virus will either mutate or die out.
