Figure 4

(a) Cumulative oral MARV shedding in log10TCID50eq ml−1 from each of the inoculated bats (symbols at the top of each unit) and the number of exposures in the contact bats (symbols at the bottom of each unit; exposure defined as a Q-RT–PCR-positive oral or rectal swab) according to unit and bat, and (b) Lorenz curve of cumulative percentage of the inoculated bat population versus cumulative percentage of oral MARV shedding ranked in descending order (that is, first circle on the curve represents bat 685734, which had the highest cumulative percentage of oral MARV shedding). The legends indicate the housing unit (1–6) and group (inoculated donor-ID and naive contact-NC) of each bat during the early study phase.
