  1. Legend: β – transition rate from susceptible to infectious, α – transition rate from infectious to carrier, ν – transition rate from carrier to infectious, σ 1 2 – variance of the random effects for the transition from susceptible to infectious, σ 2 2 - variance of the random effects for the transition from infectious to carrier, σ 3 2 - variance of the random effects for the transition from carrier to infectious, pND – probability of non-detection of infectious animals, R0 – basic reproduction ratio.
