Epidemic curves for different media functions. The epidemic curves are shown for Model (6) (dashed line) and the ABMC simulation (gray lines). There are 100 simulations plotted for each. In each panel, we also show the mean of the simulations (sold line). The first row has no media effect and rows (2-4) correspond to Functions (1)-(3). Here, I
= 300 and p
3 = 1000, .
