HIV with contact-tracing: a case study in Approximate Bayesian Computation
By contrast, the mean so journ time in the class I is not contained in the PPD and the observed number of infectious individuals is in the lower tail of the PPD.
HIV with contact-tracing: a case study in Approximate Bayesian Computation
Performance of the contact-tracing system When testing the performance of contacttracing, computed the coverage of the epidemic defined as the percentage of infectious individuals that have been detected (R1 + R2 )/(I + R1 + R2 ).
HIV with contact-tracing: a case study in Approximate Bayesian Computation
However, since the PPDs of Figure 5 show that the SIR model predicts less infectious individuals than observed, the coverage might still be overestimated and would consequently be even smaller than 62%.

Using this estimation of the coverage, we can compare the rates of detection by random screening and contact-tracing per infectious individual.

However, if the IFN efficacy is much smaller than 1, then the impact of ribavirin in the second phase decline is more profound. A plausible explanation for this is that a high IFN efficacy re sults in low HCV levels, which in turn reduces the role that ribavirin plays in rendering the virions as non-infectious.
