Following publication of the original article (Chien et al. 2020), the authors identified two errors;

  1. 1)

    The equations were not adequately presented since they all Greek symbols disappeared in the PDF version of the article.

    The correct presentation of the equations is given below.

$$ \mathrm{Log}\left({\mathrm{NP}}_{\mathrm{t}}\right)=\alpha +\beta \times \kern0.5em \mathrm{t}+\log \left({\mathrm{Total}}_{\mathrm{t}}\right),\mathrm{where}\kern0.5em \mathrm{t}=1,\dots, 38 $$
$$ \mathrm{Log}\left({\mathrm{NP}}_{\mathsf{i}\mathsf{t}}\right)=\upalpha +{\upalpha}_{\mathsf{i}\left(\mathsf{t}\right)}+{\upbeta}_{\mathsf{1}}\times \mathsf{I}\left(\mathsf{i}=\mathsf{1}\right)+{\upbeta}_2\times \mathrm{I}\left(\mathrm{i}=2\right)+\mathrm{f}\left(\mathrm{t}\right)+\log \left({\mathrm{Total}}_{\mathrm{it}}\right),\mathrm{where}\ \mathrm{i}=1,2,3;\mathrm{t}=1,\dots, 38 $$
  1. 2)

    The grey horizontal lines were missing in Fig. 1. The correct figure is given below.
