Abstract: The SARS outbreak in Hong Kong during 2003 exhibited several “super-spreader events” (SSEs) which cannot be modeled well with standard homogeneous SIR or SEIR type models. We propose an alternative model structure using either small-world or scale-free structure of inter-node connections and disease transmission only along the network links. Such structure naturally models the SSEs and provides simulations quantitatively similar to the true dynamics.
