Reachability. The top panels show the number of face-to-face interactions between pairs of individuals (in the school data we only show 2 of the 6 weeks). The bottom panel shows the mean reachability of a disease over a range of latent periods. For the purpose of presentation we have subtracted the number of nodes reached directly from the seed (this is the same for all values of the latent period duration). The tendency for latent periods which are larger multiples of 24 h or 7 days to result in lower reachability is explained by the limited time span of the data-sets
