Figure 2: Model predictions of the proportion of infected individuals in each class and their contribution to the infectious reservoir.

From: Assessing the impact of next-generation rapid diagnostic tests on Plasmodium falciparum malaria elimination strategies

Figure 2

Proportion of the infected population that have clinical disease (red), asymptomatic infection detectable by microscopy (orange) and asymptomatic infection not detectable by microscopy (yellow), and their contribution to the infectious reservoir for a range of entomological inoculation rates between 1 and 400. We predicted the proportion of infected individuals with infections detectable by microscopy for a range of transmission intensities with the three models, assuming the common inputs: stable transmission, constant seasonality, little case management and no other interventions present. The 'gametocytes only' compartment refers to individuals with recently cleared asexual parasites, but persisting gametocytes.
