At the authors request, the Editor and Publisher of Risk Management and Healthcare Policy wish to retract the published article. Following publication, the authors found they had neglected to include the quarantine state variable in the study model described in Figure 2. When in the quarantined state, the transmission rate of the quarantined patient is almost zero. However, if the quarantine rate becomes high enough, it will soon equal the rate of infection. By overlooking this, the authors believe they introduced an error into the study which will have impacted and invalidated the reported results. The Editor agreed with the authors decision to retract the paper.

Our decision-making was informed by our policy on publishing ethics and integrity and the COPE guidelines on retraction.

The retracted article will remain online to maintain the scholarly record, but it will be digitally watermarked on each page as “Retracted”.
