Epidemic progression curve expressed as daily incidence rate and cumulative illness rate. Top pair shows comparison among different school closure strategies with 1 week closing period. Central pair indicates the potential impact of antiviral drug usage during simulated pandemic period. Bottom pair illustrates the combined effectiveness of individual school closure for 1 week and antiviral strategies during pandemic. Results are illustrated in terms of daily incidence rate (symptomatic cases per day, left column) and cumulative symptomatic attack rate (percentage of population, right column).
