It stands for R naught. It should be a subscript 0, but limited on here.


It describes contagiousness of a virus and represents the number of new Infections that will come from an infection.

If an R0 is 2, one person infected typically infects two others. The delta is in the neighborhood of 2-3 times more contagious than the OG SARS-CoV-2
