Table 2 Estimation of the reproduction numbers R 0 for MDA + and MDA piglets using the best model (model 2)

From: Erratum to: Maternally-derived antibodies do not prevent transmission of swine influenza A virus between pigs

  Shedding period (days) Direct transmission rate β (days−1) Susceptibility factor σ R0
MDA+ piglets    0.39 [0.21–0.70] 5.8 [1.4–18.9]
  6.1 [5.9 – 6.4]a 2.43 [1.09 – 4.23]a   
MDA piglets    14.8 [6.4–27.1]
