Figure

Sample size of infections, n, that the quarantine duration must be based on to ensure that the quarantine failure rate is no larger than [[INLINEGRAPHIC('03-0502-M19')]] (with 95% certainty). Results assume that the quarantine duration is set equal to the largest incubation period observed in the sample of n infections. Curve is plotted using equation 4 with [[INLINEGRAPHIC('03-0502-M20')]]= 0.95.
