MRSA transmission per day and R0-values

Country C/S2) TP1 R0 95% CI C/S2) TP1 R0 95% CI

Legend: This table shows the transmission per day from the basic model (TP1) and R0-value1) with its 95% confidence interval for Dutch (NL) and Danish (DK) herds separately and all herds (NL + DK) for pre-weaning pigs only and for all pigs.

1) To calculate R0, TP1 was multiplied with 17.4 days (= length of infectious period).

2) Number of MRSA cases (C) from total number of susceptibles (S) used in analysis.
