Figure 3. The distribution of A, the total number of infected persons excluding those infected contacts who were vaccinated on time to prevent disease, and B, the time to extinction for 500 simulation runs with the baseline intervention parameter values and a basic reproduction number of 5.23. For a basic reproduction number of 10.46 and an increase of the vaccination coverage in the casual contact ring to 80% in C, the distribution of the total number of infected persons, and in D, the distribution of the time to extinction, is shown for 500 simulation runs.
