Fundamental limitations of case isolation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


Case isolation is a strategy with the potential to curb infectious disease epidemics. Expressions for the stability boundary of a case isolation scheme defined through the proportion of the infectious population that it isolates with a given delay have recently been established. Here we quantify how this stability boundary moves when heterogeneity of the inter-individual contact network increases, and explain the underlying mechanism through insightful examples.
