  1. aThe numerical figures refer to the number of alleles per PCR-amplified MIRU-VNTR locus [8, 17].
  2. bBlanks for K, M and N indicate unique strains i.e., those without matching strain in the database. Letters in parenthesis [(J), (K), (L), (M), (N), (O), (P) and (Q)] represent households.
  3. Figures under PTID (Patient Identification) column refer to the index cases (ending with 1, e.g., 1-1-01) and contact cases (ending with a numerical value > 1, e.g., 1-1-03). For (L) and (P), a similar strain was transmitted to patients in other households.
