WHO has defined four transmission scenarios for COVID-19.
- Countries with no cases (No cases);
- Countries with 1 or more cases, imported or locally detected (Sporadic cases);
- Countries experiencing cases clusters in time, geographic location and/or common exposure (Clusters of cases);
- Countries experiencing larger outbreaks of local transmission (Community transmission).
