When we talk about Corona virus spreading in clusters the largest cluster was the Wuhan itself where over five crore people were locked down ending 
up with over 2000 deaths. 

The second largest lock down was in Japanese diamond princess ship where over 3000 patients were locked up and 21%  (634) of them developed COVID 19 virus infection
The third example the cult church in South Korea where one lady infected with the virus spread it to over 30 people attending the church and she also infected multiple people in a hospital where she was treated and one person later died.

Today Shandong province in China reported that 207 cases of the new coronavirus were reported in Rencheng prison as of Feb. 20, citing information from the provincial government. A jail in the Zhejiang province has also reported a total of 34 infections. All of them are inmates, according to Chinese media.  A jail will behave like a ship and end up with 21% getting infected.

One should not do public functions in today’s date in highly COVID 19 affected countries where even one person can become like a super spreader and infect hundreds of others.

Such clusters can also happen when the schools and colleges open in China or the public functions starts in various parts of affected areas.
