The distribution of the basic reproduction number, R0, the number of secondary infected cells through the cell-free infection, Rcf, and the cell-to-cell infection, Rcc, calculated from all accepted Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) parameter estimates are shown in A, B, and C, respectively. The contribution of the cell-to-cell infection (i.e., Rcc/(Rcf + Rcc)) is distributed as in D. For each plot, the last 15,000 MCMC samples among the total 50,000 samples are used. a.u., arbitrary unit.
