Geographical distribution of estimated resource gaps across provinces in Lao PDR for three pandemic scenarios. For demonstration purposes, the AsiaFluCap simulator was used to run for each province a mild (A and D), moderate (B and E) and severe (C and F) pandemic influenza scenario, assuming a basic reproduction number of 1.4 and contact reduction of 10%. The maps show surpluses and gaps in hospital beds and ventilators (A, B, and C), and oseltamivir (D, E, and F) for each pandemic scenario.
