From: Emergency vaccination of rabies under limited resources – combating or containing?

Figure 11

Emergency vaccination with increasing resources. The vaccinated area (PVacArea) is doubled with a time lag of 1 up to 5 vaccination campaigns (R – Ring strategy, C – Circle strategy; PVacArea = 6,400, 10,800, and 16,000; 10,000 repetitions). (a) Risk of rabies breakout from the control area with respect to the time lag when the vaccinated area was doubled: We cannot find the predicted switch point (see text); the circle strategy still performs better. (b) Chance of eradication with respect to the time lag when vaccinated area was doubled: In contrast to experiment 1 there is eradication now in the ring strategy; however the control success is shifted by the time lag.
