Coloured segments of each bar represent cost components as follows: (blue) health care; (red) antiviral drugs, including dispensing costs; (green) productivity losses due to illness and social distancing interventions; (purple) productivity losses due to deaths. Note that horizontal scale is different for each severity category. Values are for a pandemic with unmitigated transmissibility of R0 = 1.8. Interventions abbreviated as: SC – school closure; CCR – 50% community contact reduction; WR – 50% workforce reduction; 4, 8 – intervention duration in weeks; cont – continuous duration; AV – antiviral treatment of diagnosed symptomatic cases and antiviral prophylaxis of household members of diagnosed symptomatic cases.
