Point infection control (PIC) tactic. Concentric rings around the location of a rabid animal represent vector population reduction (PR), trap–vaccinate–release (TVR), and ORV zones (12). Each new source leads to repeated, overlapping ORV, TVR, and PR rings. Potential savings are assumed within the zones and for assumed distances beyond the zones.
