What is the physical interpretation of the Weisskopf-Wigner approximation, when it is applied in the neutral kaon system?

I would say that the approximation means that a decay state has a small probability to suffer a transition (or be "transformed") into another decay state through weak interaction. But I'm not sure about this.

I would please like to know some references that can help me to understand better this approximation in the kaon system. I'm following the book "CP Puzzle " by Kabir
