Score matrices for the weekend to week comparison. Matrices of scores associated to the ratios of age-specific close-contact rates when comparing weekends to the week. The scores are based on the 95% bootstrap based confidence intervals where red indicates that the ratio is significantly lower than 1 (i.e. less contacts during the weekend), orange not-significantly different from 1 (i.e. similar numbers of contacts during the week and weekends) and yellow significantly higher than 1 (i.e. more contacts during the weekend). The matrices are shown for BE, GB, IT, LU, NL and PL for which the relative reproduction number was significantly different from 1.
