There are estimates that one infected person may transmit the disease to between 5 and 10 other persons in populations with no natural or vaccine-induced immunity.52 Those persons can, in turn, infect 5 to 10 others and that is how an epidemic can begin. On the basis of the signs and symptoms of the adverse events, reports are coded by use of the FDA’s Coding Symbols for Thesaurus of Adverse Reaction Terms (COSTART) [18].
