Simulation results for the different classes of individuals. A-E) Distributions of the fraction of individuals of each class reached by the spread, for the various contact pattern representations. F) Boxplots (boxes defined as in Figure 3) showing these distributions when the global attack rate is larger than 10%. Here 1/σ = 0.5 days, 1/ν = 1 day and β = 2.8 10-3 s-1.
