  1. Rankings of control types at four different control intensities and four sets of initial conditions (rankings are in order of most effective to least effective). N = no control, V = vaccination, L = isolation, M = medication, C = border closure, and T = travel ban for infected individuals only. Red text reflects scenarios in which no control outperforms a management option
