  1. aPercentages indicate proportion of acute samples where each microbe was identified
  2. bPercentages indicate proportion of acute samples where each microbe pair was co-detected
  3. cp-value computed by χ2- or Fisher’s exact (*) test, indicating that co-detection of each of the listed microbe pairs occurred more frequently than expected by chance
