Data from: Distinguishing between reservoir exposure and human-to-human transmission for emerging pathogens using case onset data

Adam Kucharski, Harriet L. Mills, Amy Pinsent, Christophe Fraser, Maria Van Kerkhove, Christl A. Donnelly, Steven Riley & Harriet Mills
Pathogens such as MERS-CoV, influenza A/H5N1 and influenza A/H7N9 are currently generating sporadic clusters of spillover human cases from animal reservoirs. The lack of a clear human epidemic suggests that the basic reproductive number R0 is below or very close to one for all three infections. However, robust cluster-based estimates for low R0 values are still desirable so as to help prioritise scarce resources between different emerging infections and to detect significant changes between clusters...
