Model 1: Simple SEIR – Population is divided into 4 classes: susceptible (S), exposed (E), infectious (I), and recovered/removed (R). Class C represents the auxiliary variable C (t) and tracks the cumulative number of infectious individuals from the start of the outbreak. This is presented as a dashed line, as it is not a state of the system of equations, but simply a class to track the cumulative incidence cases; meaning, individuals from the population are not moving to class C. Parameter(s) above arrows denote the rate individuals move between classes. Parameter descriptions and values are found in Table 1
