Epidemiological model lends insight to chlamydia outbreak in Japan

Mathematical models that quantify the dynamics of infectious diseases are crucial predictive tools for the control of ongoing and future outbreaks. An infection's basic reproduction number (R0) is especially important to disease modeling and epidemiology, as it determines global behavior and measures a disease's transferability within a fully-susceptible population. In short, R0 helps public health officials discern an epidemic's intensity and the likelihood of its successful spread. If R0>1, an outbreak occurs. If R0
