A) Distribution of travel duration by epidemiologic week; B–E) timing of illness onset by travel duration in case-patients who did not have symptoms before embarkation (n = 87). Black, travel duration <3 h; white, 3–5.9 h; red, 6–14.9 h; blue, >15 h. Mean time from arrival to illness onset was 3.5 days (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.9–5.2), 1.7 days (95% CI 0.9–2.4), 1.0 days (95% CI 0.4–1.6), and 0.8 days (95% CI 0.0–1.5), respectively. The percentage of patients with symptom onset before arrival was 0%, 14%, 29%, and 33%, respectively. Week 21, May 24–30; week 22, May 30–June 6; week 23, June 7–13; week 24, June 14–20; week 25, June 21–27.
