Figure 4. COVID-19 infection, death, and reproductive number for older adults and younger population (as of 30 April 2020). The computation assumed that younger individuals, as imported cases, transmit the disease to the senior citizens for the Rt of age 60 and up, and vice-versa for Rt of age less than 60. The reproduction number for senior citizens would describe their transmission potential within their group after subtracting the effect of transmission from the younger group, while the Rt for age less than 60 would be vice-versa.
