Abstract Objectives: To assess the secondary attack rates (SAR) and impact of the 2009 H1N1 epidemic in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, and the measures implemented to control household transmission. Methods: Patients with polymerase chain reaction-confirmed influenza A and pandemic H1N1 (pH1N1) were identified from hospital and microbiology laboratory records and asked to take part in a retrospective survey. Information obtained included: the constellation of symptoms, contact history… Expand
Estimation of outbreak severity and transmissibility: Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 in households
TLDR
This work addresses the added benefit from retaining the heterogeneous outcome information in the case of the 2009-10 influenza pandemic, which posed particular problems for estimation of key epidemiological characteristics due to its relatively mild nature and hence low case ascertainment rates. Expand
The COVID-19 Symptom to Isolation Cascade in a Latinx Community: A Call to Action
TLDR
Over half of the 10-day isolation period passed by the time of disclosure, and over a fifth of people were likely outside the window of infectiousness by thetime they received results, suggesting improvements in test access and turnaround time, plus support for isolation, are needed. Expand
Safety and effectiveness of neuraminidase inhibitors in situations of pandemic and/or novel/variant influenza: a systematic review of the literature, 2009–15
TLDR
The evidence suggests NIs are likely safe to use in the general population; however, data for children and pregnant women are limited and knowledge gaps persist in specific populations such as Aboriginals, high-risk individuals and the elderly. Expand
How to improve adherence with quarantine: Rapid review of the evidence
TLDR
People vary in their adherence to quarantine during infectious disease outbreaks, so public health officials should provide a timely, clear rationale for quarantine and information about protocols; emphasise social norms to encourage this altruistic behaviour and increase the perceived benefit that engaging in quarantine will have on public health. Expand
How to improve adherence with quarantine: rapid review of the evidence
TLDR
People vary in their adherence to quarantine during infectious disease outbreaks, and public health officials should provide a timely, clear rationale for quarantine and information about protocols to increase the perceived benefit that engaging in quarantine will have on public health. Expand
How Much Money Should be Paid for a Patient to Isolate During the COVID-19 Outbreak? A Discrete Choice Experiment in Iran
TLDR
The findings suggested that financial preferences for being isolated vary widely across individuals within different socioeconomic groups, and policymakers should consider these differences when designing effective intervention to increase compliance with the isolation protocols during infectious disease outbreaks. Expand
The importance of health promotion in the prevention of COVID-19
TLDR
Promoting precautionary behaviors in the public through personal hygiene and voluntary social distancing will break the chain of infection and prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 (your health in your hand). Expand
Diagnosing swine flu: the inaccuracy of case definitions during the 2009 pandemic, an attempt at refinement, and the implications for future planning
TLDR
This study presents new clinical case definitions for H1N1/09 influenza A outbreak in Australia that were developed by health authorities to guide testing and access to antiviral therapy. Expand
Household Transmission of Influenza Virus
TLDR
It was found that once one household member is infected with influenza, the risk of infection in a household contact can be up to 38%, and the delay between onset in index and secondary cases is around 3 days. Expand
Use of non‐pharmaceutical interventions to reduce the transmission of influenza in adults: A systematic review
TLDR
Despite the potential for NPI in preventing influenza transmission, there is very limited data available and properly designed studies evaluating large populations including ‘at risk’ patients and in a variety of communities are needed. Expand

TLDR
The present results indicate that PEP is effective for preventing secondary H1N1 infection among household contacts and characteristics of secondary infection. Expand
Influenza A (H1N1) in Victoria, Australia: A Community Case Series and Analysis of Household Transmission
TLDR
Most cases of pH1N1 in the study were mild with similar clinical characteristics to seasonal influenza, and Illness and case features relating to virus excretion, age and household quarantine may have influenced secondary ILI rates within households. Expand
Transmission of Novel Influenza A(H1N1) in Households with Post-Exposure Antiviral Prophylaxis
TLDR
The results indicate that the overall household transmission levels of novel influenza A(H1N1) in antiviral-treated households were low in the early stage of the epidemic and the relatively high rate of adult-to-child transmission indicates that control measures focused on this transmission route will be most effective in minimizing the total number of infections.

TLDR
When assessing the efficacy of a specific intervention in reducing the risk of influenza-related death, particular care is required regarding the inclusion criteria and in matching age and underlying conditions between patients with, and without, the intervention. Expand
Household transmission of 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1) virus in the United States.
TLDR
The transmissibility of the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus in households is lower than that seen in past pandemics, and most transmissions occur soon before or after the onset of symptoms in a case patient. Expand
Assessing secondary attack rates among household contacts at the beginning of the influenza A (H1N1) pandemic in Ontario, Canada, April-June 2009: A prospective, observational study
TLDR
Secondary attack rates for pandemic influenza A (H1N1) were comparable to seasonal influenza estimates suggesting similarities in transmission, and high secondary attack rates in children provide additional support for increased susceptibility to infection. Expand

TLDR
Transmission of the emerging virus in 595 households in which the index case was the first symptomatic case of influenza A(H1N1)2009 was investigated, finding that young children were also more efficient transmitters and individual risk was not associated with household size. Expand

TLDR
Early oseltamivir treatment may be beneficial in preventing H1N1pdm influenza transmission; this may have relevance to future control measures for influenza pandemics. Expand
