Abstract [en]

The probability that an observed infection has been transmitted from a particular member of a set of potential infectors is calculated. The calculations only use knowledge of the times of infection. It is shown that the probabilities depend on individual variability in latent and infectious times. The analysis are based on different background information and different assumptions on the progress of infectivity. The results are illustrated by numerical calculations and simulations.
