English scientists have created a mathematical model for the distribution of coronavirus in the world. According to their calculations, the peak incidence will occur in the second half of February 2020, and the number of cases will reach 500 thousand people.

According to official information, currently 37 thousand people have become infected with a new infection. This figure is significantly different from that of scientists at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Disease Research. As he writes RBC they drew conclusions based on the spread of the virus in Wuhan, China. 

Experts believe that the difference was significant due to the underestimation of official statistics on coronavirus. So, for example, patients who have had a mild virus are not detected. At the University of Hong Kong, they believe that the prognosis will become more pronounced in the next two weeks: either the disease will continue to spread worldwide, or the measures taken by China will be sufficient to contain it.
