Table 6 Comparison of slopes across the different country locations. This indicates the observed difference in the outcomes from the epidemics due to the differences in the coefficient of household isolation (the extreme scenarios of complete dependency versus pathogens functioning independently) and the household size distribution in the country location used as shown in Fig. 3 (3.1, 3.2)
