Connecting Network Properties of Rapidly Disseminating Epizoonotics

Figure 8

Comparison between connectivity and contact models–the FMD epizoonotic.

After TC I, epidemic nodes centered on the road network (the connectivity model) showed twice as many cases as circles of equal radius that did not consider the road network (the contact model): while 360 cases were reported within epidemic nodes (A), 181 cases were found within the same time frame in the neighborhood of earlier cases (B). Longer road length and less fragmentated road segments were associated with the connectivity model (C) than with the contact model (D).
