After recording this, I realized it would perhaps be more appropriate to refer to "R" in this lecture, rather than to "R0": R0 is indeed the "basic reproduction number" of the virus, estimated around 3.5, on which one has no control; while R is its "effective reproduction number", on which our behaviour can have a great influence.
