  1. a: please see Additional file 1 for the interpretations of parameters; for the observation model with sensitivity and specificity (models 9 and 10), μ TF is the sensitivity of TF, σ TF is the specificity of TF, μ TI is the sensitivity of TI, σ TI is the specificity of TI, μ PCR is the sensitivity of PCR, and σ PCR is the specificity of PCR
  2. b: 95 % CI was obtained from MCMC with 16384 steps after a burn-in including 8192 steps
