Estimating the effective reproduction number of dengue considering temperature-dependent generation intervals.

Abstract

estimates in the presence of temperature-mediated seasonality and apply this method to simulated and real data from two cities in Brazil where dengue is endemic. The method shows good precision in the simulated data. When applied to the real data, it shows differences in the transmission profile of the two cities and identifies periods of higher transmission.
