Which virus highest r0 value? (Hint: it's not Covid-19)
Food for thought

"Which virus has the highest r0?

Pertussis (whooping cough) has a high R0: 15-17. Untreated tuberculosis' R0=10 while influenza's R0 is usually less than 2. We can also estimate R0 from contacts.Aug 5, 2016"

You're assuming that Covid-19 has
the same value as the flu.

the R0 value is likely to be between 4.7 and 6.6

how many non-asians are involved?

plus it seems to go after males...mostly older...to elderly.

not many young ones...those that came down with the virus had preexisting respiratory issues.

but really...any word on non-asian?

Not sure if this info takes into account the possibility
of engineered pathogens and how the r0 value should be determined in that case

"One of the most infectious diseases is measles with an R0 between 12-18. Before measles vaccination, a child could infect 15 children in one classroom. Those 15 classmates could then each infect 15 schoolmates. Measles spreads fast. To avoid measles spreading, 83-95% need to be vaccinated.

We calculate R0 by observing how quickly the disease initially spreads. Ebola's n R0 is likely 1.34, 1.86 or 1.6-2.0. Smallpox was eradicated with an R0 of 3.5-6 which required 8 in 10 to be immune. Pertussis (whooping cough) has a high R0: 15-17. Untreated tuberculosis' R0=10 while influenza's R0 is usually less than 2."
