The potential impact of case-area targeted interventions in response to cholera outbreaks: A modeling study

Fig 3

Comparison of the simulated evolution of epidemics with and without case-area targeted interventions.

Upper panels in each pair of panels show the simulated evolution of the epidemics without intervention and with case-area targeted allocation of antibiotics, OCV, or POUWT within a 100-m radius starting at the epidemic peak. Lower panels in each pair of panels show the corresponding number of people targeted daily and the number of people protected by each intervention. Solid lines designate the median over all simulations, shaded areas the 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles. The red bars at the top of the panels mark the period during which interventions were applied. OCV, oral cholera vaccine; POUWT, point-of-use water treatment.
