Figure 6.31 Communicable disease diffusion in Iceland. Hypothetical sketch of the spread

movements are likely to be young adults; at 3 and 4, children. The synchrony of
Iceland with Europe and the United States as international sources which seed
infectious diseases in Iceland is discussed in Weinberger, et al.
