CORRECTION

Statistics from Altmetric.com

Two typographical errors in the equations occurred in this paper by Drs Choi and Pak (2003;57:831–5).

Wrong equationCorrect equation
Ct⋅iCt⋅i = R0t.
Dt⋅i.d = Ct⋅i X F.Dt⋅i+d = Ct⋅i X F.

The complete set of correct equations is therefore:

PREDICTING THE NUMBER OF SARS CASES

Mathematically, the predicted number of incident cases on day t⋅i, that is, Ct⋅i, where t is time expressed in the number of incubation periods, is

Math

The predicted total number of cases (C) is

PREDICTING THE NUMBER OF SARS DEATHS

Mathematically, the predicted number of deaths on day t⋅i+d, that is, Dt⋅i+d, where t is time expressed in the number of incubation periods, is

Math

The predicted total number of deaths (D) is
