    The new strains of covid are more contagious.  They aren't ENORMOUSLY more contagious. 

    Without masking and social distancing:

    old variate = 6 people would likely cause 32 people to get infected

    new variate = 6 people would likely cause 37 people to get infected.

    With masking and social distancing the new variate would cause one or two people extra people to become infected.
