I think it is already communal. The tests we are hearing about were started 4-5 days ago. Anyone they had contact with before the tests, while they were in the community shedding this obviously very virulent virus, will have started shedding the virus themselves 4-2 days and started showing symtoms 2 days ago.
Anyone who could catch the virus from that secondary/tertiary person has just been infected in the last couple of days. And they now are walking around symptomless, but shedding the virus.
The person who went to Mexico for a cheap vacation got back 5 days ago. Was shedding the virus for 2 or 3 days without symptoms, while they interacted with people in your community, went shopping, peed on the toilet, kissed their children good night. Some of the people they contacted, like their child, then picked up the virus 2 days ago and went to school where they have been shedding the virus in school. The guy who went on vacation Mexico just started getting sick yesterday. Today he feels like a Mac Truck hit him. He's thinking of going to the doctor.
Meanwhile, the cashier he handed money to at the supermarket is about 1 day from showing symptoms, is at work and just coughed on her hand then handed another person their change. The cashier will never know who she got the virus from. The person who just took their changed has no idea they are going to be sick in 5 days, and will have no clue or link to Mexico-Vacation guy.
Communal Virus. It is in the community, and in the next couple of days we'll start seeing just how virulent it is.
