Understanding social contact patterns in schools and households relevant to the transmission of respiratory infections.
This study was set up to understand how social interactions may lead to the transmission of respiratory infections in various settings. We found out that interactions differ by location (rural/ urban) and setting (schools and households). Mathematical models created to understand transmission and to assist in the design of interventions need to factor different interaction patterns for more robust models.
