From: Mitigation of infectious disease at school: targeted class closure vs school closure

Figure 2

Comparison of different strategies. Temporal evolution of the median number of infectious individuals for the targeted class, targeted grade, and whole school closure strategies, at a fixed closure-triggering threshold of 3 infectious individuals and closure duration of 144 hours (6 days). The no-closure scenario is provided for reference. Only realizations with an attack rate (AR) higher than 10% are taken into account. Parameter values: β=3.5·10−4 s −1, β com =2.8·10−9 s −1, 1/μ=2 days, 1/γ=4 days, p A =1/3.
