How to use spreading in a sentence?

  1. Anthony Fauci:

    We want to find out, scientists to scientists, exactly what is going on, but it's something that has emerged in South Africa and seems to be spreading at a reasonably rapid rate, in the sense of when they do test positivity they're seeing it's a bit more widespread in South Africa than was originally felt a couple of days ago. So it's in a fluid motion. We're finding more about it and, literally, it's something that – in real time – we're learning more and more about.

  2. Joanna Lydgate:

    What we're seeing right now is unprecedented, to see candidates running on a platform of lies and conspiracy theories about our elections as a campaign position, to see a former President getting involved in endorsing in down-ballot races at the primary level, and certainly to see this kind of systemic attacks on our elections, this spreading of disinformation about our elections -- we've never seen anything like this before as a country.

  3. Ralf Reintjes:

    The autumn-winter season is the best season for transmitting the virus. People are indoors, and that plays an important role, people are fed up [ with Covid-19 ] and they don't stick to behavior which would limit the spread of the virus. So it's spreading much better now.

  4. Krissada Sangsing:

    We are committed to preventing this disease and containing it from spreading further.

  5. Eric Hoffer:

    The real haves are they who can acquire freedom, self-confidence, and even riches without depriving others of them. They acquire all of these by developing and applying their potentialities. On the other hand, the real have nots are they who cannot have aught except by depriving others of it. They can feel free only by diminishing the freedom of others, self-confident by spreading fear and dependence among others, and rich by making others poor.
