Figure 5. . Spatiotemporal patterns in annual dengue epidemics in southern Vietnam. The phase interval (days) between the dengue time series in each province (A) relative to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) and each district (B) relative to District 1 in HCMC is shown by year. The largest negative values (dark purple) indicate the earliest locations for the annual dengue epidemics, zero (gray hatched) represents synchrony with the HCMC time series, and positive values (green) indicate dengue epidemics that occurred later than in HCMC.
