Table 6 The average prevalence \(E[\rho ]\) when the recovery rate is \(\gamma = 0\%\) per step and \(\phi =10\%\) of the contacts are removed from each temporal network using removal probability (3) based on each centrality metric and \(f(t)=4\cdot 1_{t\le T/2}+ 1_{t>T/2}\). Contacts occurring early in time i.e. \(t<T/2\) are more likely to be removed
