BBC News: Spread of hepatitis C pinpointed

"Working out how many people are likely to be infected by each super-spreader of Hepatitis C, as well as how soon they will be infected, has been a puzzle for over 20 years," he said.

"Our research has resolved this issue and paves the way for a modelling study to show what kind of public health interventions could really make a difference."

He added the approach could be useful in other infections such as HIV.
