P. 755, second column, last sentence) This offers an interesting evolutionary perspective on the subjects, likely a reflection of Charles Darwin’s legacy. However, while evidence of viral evolution is abundant and well accepted, selection for human adaptation to infectious diseases is more elusive. a The population consists of N individuals. Therefore, there are N − 1 rather than N possible contacts for each individual of that population. 2) suggest a discrete time model: while a given individual comes in contact with other members of the population, the number of infecteds remains constant.

8. An implicit assumption is that the probabilities of coming in contact with any other member in the population are the same. 3 The model From these assumptions it follows that the probability of getting in contact with an x . a Why is the denominator of this expression N − 1? e. 1− x N −1 = = N −1 x − N −1 N −1 N −1−x . N −1 The right-hand side of the first equation above is obtained by setting 1 = N−1 N−1 . The probability of not coming in contact with any infecteds, if A contacts are made is, 1 The correct term would be “infectious individuals”, but “infecteds” is easier to read and write.

En’ko then proceeds to lead over to the empirical evidence for his model. He comments that, despite the many assumptions that have to be made and the fact that his method is rather crude (“imperfect”) “[. . ” (p. 750, second column, second paragraph) The observations he is referring to consist, as mentioned before, of infirmary records on measles outbreaks in the period between 1875 and 1888 in a boarding school for girls, the Imperial Educational College for the Daughters of the Nobility and the Alexander Institution in St Petersburg, Russia.
