Fig. 5

Simulation results showing the average population proportion from 100 simulated epidemics during the epidemic period that are under household isolation for being symptomatic for infections. The black and the red line indicate how the proportion of people acquires infections during the course of the epidemic and then recover with time. The red line shows that a maximum of a tenth of the population remains at home on an average during the epidemic period. The blue line almost covers the red line indicating that majority of the infection episodes are caused by one pathogen. The pink and the grey lines are almost close to zero at all the time points indicating how unlikely it is for an individual to be infected with more than one pathogen at a time
