Time-series figures for the super-infectious humans at varying levels of interaction(A) The simulation illustrates that for low super-transmissibility (R0=1.4) and varying levels of interaction (γp), the system will exhibit reoccurring outbreaks. (B) Bird’s-eye view of the Fig. 2A shows as the level of interaction increases, the outbreaks become larger but further apart. (C) The simulation illustrates that for high super-incidence (R0=2.3) and varying levels of pig-to-human contact transmissibility (γp), the system will exhibit an initial large-scale outbreak that is followed by successively damping outbreaks. (D) Bird’s-eye view of Fig. 2C shows how varying level of interaction has no effect on the dynamics of the outbreak.
