OBJECTIVES During the first wave of the 2009 influenza pH1N1, disease burden was distributed in a geographically heterogeneous fashion. It was particularly high in some remote and isolated Canadian communities when compared with urban centres. We sought to estimate the transmissibility (the basic reproduction number) of pH1N1 strain in some remote and isolated Canadian communities. DESIGN A discrete time susceptible-exposed-infected transmission model was fit to infection curves simulated… CONTINUE READING
