Publication: "Spatial Bridges and the Spread of Chlamydia: The Case of a County in Sweden" by among others Monica K Nordvik and Fredrik Liljeros is now published in Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Spatial bridges are links in a sexual network that connect regions of the network that would otherwise be very distant. By analyzing contact tracing data the authors conclude that halting the spread of clamydia may be very difficult due to these bridges.

To the paper. Press release.
