Table 2 Results of sensitivity analysis: impact of the variability in the input variables in influencing variability in the attack number (total cumulative number of infected people), as determined by (i) partial rank correlation coefficients, (ii) standardized regression coefficients, and (iii) factor prioritization by reduction of variance.
