Spatial dynamics of an epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome in an urban area
Objective: To map risk of exposure to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in an urban area and assess the ability of traditional interventions to control dispersion of the disease. Methods: Data on the Beijing SARS epidemic were used to map spatial clusters of identified contacts and to estimate transmission of SARS using a model with a time-dependent transmission rate. Results: The estimated transmission rate decreased dramatically from 20 to 30 April 2003. The total number of cases in...[Show more]
