a, Kernel density estimate of the inferred distance between a source and a sink health zone for 188 high-confidence events where a viral lineage moved between two health zones (HZs): 50 and 95% of movement events occurred between health zones <49 and <200 km apart, respectively. b, Kernel density estimate of the number of times a lineage was introduced into a different health zone: 50 and 95% of lineages seeded fewer than five and 25 introduction events, respectively. c, Kernel density estimate of the number of times EBOV was introduced into each health zone: 50 and 95% of health zones experienced fewer than three and eight introduction events, respectively. d, Kernel density estimate of the duration of time a lineage circulated within a single health zone: 50 and 95% of lineages circulated within a single health zone for <10 and 40 weeks, respectively.
