Basic reproduction number, Advanced Statistics

Basic reproduction number: A term used in the theory of infectious diseases for the number of secondary cases which one case would generate in a completely susceptible population. The number relies on the duration of the infectious time period, the probability of infecting a susceptible individual during one contact, and the number of new vulnerable individuals contacted per unit time, with the result that it may vary considerably for different infectious diseases and also for the same disease in the different populations.
