Figure 4

Percentage of mosquito infections originating from submicroscopic carriers, according to the observed slide prevalence of infection. Estimates are based on results from Fig. 1a and measures of infectiousness from three studies (7,21 and ALO, unpublished data). The estimated % of all infections which are submicroscopic from Fig. 1a is shown as a black dashed line.
