Abstract:   (2916 Views)

Our country was not immune to this outbreak. Effective measures to combat this new virus would be certainly based on a proper understanding of the epidemiological pattern and its evaluation in the community. Under these circumstances, proper understanding and use of epidemiology-based indicators or approaches are more than ever needed by authorities and decision-makers. One of the most important and commonly used indices that have been used in most epidemics, including the COVID-19 outbreak, is the Basic Reproduction Number (R_0). Given the increasing need for the medical community and health care staff to deepen their understanding of the epidemiological concepts in dealing with epidemics, this article aimed to define R_0 and its application in the evaluation and monitoring of the COVID-19 epidemiological pattern in society
