It wants to spread, but it needs people to come into contact with each other to do so.

“It now depends on the actions we take as individuals, as to whether this virus gets an opportunity to spread through our communities. Continue to follow the public health advice, know the risks, know the symptoms and stay safe,” the Acting Chief Medical Officer stated.
