Notes on initial conditions: For those in which recovered is not a human category, the initial recovered population was included in the susceptible group. If there is not an exposed category in humans and/or mosquitos, the initial exposed population was combined with the infected group. Absolute numbers were reinterpreted as percentages or ratios when appropriate.
