In human surveys, publications were excluded from further analysis if the study population was selected from people pre-determined as likely infection candidates, for example hospital surveys of pulmonary clinic patients. A publication was also excluded if the total study population was not given. In some papers, study populations were identified and subsequently only those individuals presenting symptoms were recruited for the survey. These publications were included as the original study population total was also given. Both cross-sectional (community-wide) and school-based surveys were included. For mammal surveys also, studies were excluded if total study population was not provided.
