  1. 341 simulations were performed with the parameters R 0max and R 0min set within each specified range. 10 best-fit simulations were selected based on the correlation coefficient between the simulated epidemic curve and the observed weekly A/H1N1 IVIR curve. Pearson method was used to estimate the correlation coefficient
  2. GM geometric mean, GSD geometric standard deviation
  3. a R 0max and R 0min defined the range of the basic reproductive number [25]
  4. b I Xpeak denoted the peak day of the epidemic curve which was manifested by the infectives of clade X
  5. c I Xmax denoted the proportion of the total population being infectives of clade X on the peak day
  6. d R eX estimated the annual effective reproductive number of clade X
