Utility of R0 as a predictor of disease invasion in structured populations. (1/105)

Early theoretical work on disease invasion typically assumed large and well-mixed host populations. Many human and wildlife systems, however, have small groups with limited movement among groups. In these situations, the basic reproductive number, R0, is likely to be a poor predictor of a disease pandemic because it typically does not account for group structure and movement of individuals among groups. We extend recent work by combining the movement of hosts, transmission within groups, recovery from infection and the recruitment of new susceptibles into a stochastic model of disease in a host metapopulation. We focus on how recruitment of susceptibles affects disease invasion and how population structure can affect the frequency of superspreading events (SSEs). We show that the frequency of SSEs may decrease with the reduced movement and the group sizes due to the limited number of susceptible individuals available. Classification tree analysis of the model results illustrates the hierarchical nature of disease invasion in host metapopulations. First, the pathogen must effectively transmit within a group (R0>1), and then the pathogen must persist within a group long enough to allow for movement among the groups. Therefore, the factors affecting disease persistence--such as infectious period, group size and recruitment of new susceptibles--are as important as the local transmission rates in predicting the spread of pathogens across a metapopulation.  (+info)

Analyses of the 1957 (Asian) influenza pandemic in the United Kingdom and the impact of school closures. (2/105)

Many countries plan to close schools during a future influenza pandemic, although the potential impact is poorly understood. We apply a model of the transmission dynamics of pandemic influenza to consultation, serological and clinical data from the United Kingdom from the 1957 (Asian) influenza pandemic, to estimate the basic reproduction number (R0), the proportion of infected individuals who experience clinical symptoms and the impact of school/nursery closures. The R0 for Asian influenza was about 1.8 and 60-65% of infected individuals were estimated to have experienced clinical symptoms. During a future pandemic, closure of schools/nurseries could reduce the epidemic size only by a very small amount (<10%) if R0 is high (e.g. 2.5 or 3.5), and modest reductions, e.g. 22% might be possible if it is low (1.8) and schools are closed early, depending on assumptions about contact patterns. Further data on contact patterns and their dependence on school closures are needed.  (+info)

A mathematical model of the dynamics of Salmonella Cerro infection in a US dairy herd. (3/105)

We developed a mathematical model of the transmission dynamics of salmonella to describe an outbreak of S. Cerro infection that occurred in a Pennsylvania dairy herd. The data were collected as part of a cooperative research project between the Regional Dairy Quality Management Alliance and the Agricultural Research Service. After the initial detection of a high prevalence of S. Cerro infection in the herd, a frequent and intensive sampling was conducted and the outbreak was followed for 1 year. The data showed a persistent presence of S. Cerro with a high prevalence of infection in the herd. The dynamics of host and pathogen were modelled using a set of nonlinear differential equations. A more realistically distributed (gamma-distributed) infectious period using multiple stages of infection was considered. The basic reproduction number was calculated and relevance to the intervention strategies is discussed.  (+info)

A very important number for describing whether a disease can become an epidemic or not is R0, pronounced R naught or R zero. It refers to how many people a person who has this disease is expected to infect on average. It is an abbreviation for basic reproduction number. If R0 , 1, a disease can become an epidemic. If R0 , 1, it cannot. Many known diseases have R0 , 1 and cannot become epidemics. If they occur only occasionally, they are called sporadic. When there is a steady level of regular cases occurring in a region, the disease is called endemic. Doctors can use vaccines to make enough people immune in a population to stop epidemics from happening. We can also use other measures to make the effective reproduction rate (Re, usually written Rt with t for time) lower than the basic reproduction rate (R0). An example of a vaccine that works really well is the smallpox vaccine, which stopped smallpox virus from spreading so well that it no longer exists except in laboratories. Examples of ...
Existing estimates of the basic reproduction number, R0, for human schistosomes are mostly in the range 1-4, implying that schistosomes should be relatively easy to eliminate from endemic areas, which is contrary to practical experience. An estimate of R0 for a site in Zimbabwe is obtained here using a mathematical model explicitly incorporating two features believed to be epidemiologically significant; age-dependent exposure and acquired immunity. Parameter estimates are, as far as possible, obtained independently, but the coefficients representing man-snail and snail-man transmission, as well as parameters representing effects of acquired immunity, must be estimated indirectly by fitting the model to field data. Heterogeneity in human exposure and contamination is crudely incorporated by considering `wormy and non-wormy fractions of the population. The results suggest R0 to be in the range 4-5 or more, higher than previous estimates and despite only moderate levels of infection at this site. ...
In this paper, we investigate a disease transmission model of SIRS type with latent period τ≥0 and the specific nonmonotone incidence rate, namely, For the basic reproduction number R0>1, applying monotone iterative techniques, we establish sufficient conditions for the global asymptotic stability of endemic equilibrium of system which become partial answers to the open problem in [Hai-Feng Huo, Zhan-Ping Ma, Dynamics of a delayed epidemic model with non-monotonic incidence rate, Commun. Nonlinear Sci. Numer. Simul. 15 (2010) 459-468]. Moreover, combining both monotone iterative techniques and the Lyapunov functional techniques to an SIR model by perturbation, we derive another type of sufficient conditions for the global asymptotic stability of the endemic equilibrium ...
To estimate the basic reproduction number (R(0)) of Borrelia lusitaniae and Borrelia afzelii, we formulated a mathematical model considering the interactions among the tick vector, vertebrate hosts, and pathogens in a 500-ha enclosed natural reserve on Le Cerbaie hills, Tuscany, central Italy. In the study area, Ixodes ricinus were abundant and were found infected by B. lusitaniae and B. afzelii. Lizards (Podarcis spp.) and mice (Apodemus spp.), respectively, are the reservoir hosts of these two Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.) genospecies and compete for immature ticks. B. lusitaniae R(0) estimation is in agreement with field observations, indicating the maintenance and diffusion of this genospecies in the study area, where lizards are abundant and highly infested by I. ricinus immature stages. In fact, B. lusitaniae shows a focal distribution in areas where the tick vector and the vertebrate reservoir coexist.

We present a stochastic model for the spread of smallpox after a small number of index cases are introduced into a susceptible population. The model describes a branching process for the spread of the infection and the effects of intervention measures. We discuss scenarios in which ring vaccination of direct contacts of infected persons is sufficient to contain an epidemic. Ring vaccination can be successful if infectious cases are rapidly diagnosed. However, because of the inherent stochastic nature of epidemic outbreaks, both the size and duration of contained outbreaks are highly variable. Intervention requirements depend on the basic reproduction number R0, for which different estimates exist. When faced with the decision of whether to rely on ring vaccination, the public health community should be aware that an epidemic might take time to subside even for an eventually successful intervention strategy.
The reproduction number R and the growth rate r are critical epidemiological quantities. They are linked by generation intervals, the time between infection and onward transmission. Because generation intervals are difficult to observe, epidemiologists often substitute serial intervals, the time between symptom onset in successive links in a transmission chain. Recent studies suggest that such substitution biases estimates of R based on r. Here we explore how these intervals vary over the course of an epidemic, and the implications for R estimation. Forward-looking serial intervals, measuring time forward from symptom onset of an infector, correctly describe the renewal process of symptomatic cases and therefore reliably link R with r. In contrast, backward-looking intervals, which measure time backward, and intrinsic intervals, which neglect population-level dynamics, give incorrect R estimates. Forward-looking intervals are affected both by epidemic dynamics and by censoring, changing in ...

In this paper, we consider the evolutionary competition between budding and lytic viral release strategies, using a delay differential equation model with distributed delay. When antibody is not established, the dynamics of competition depends on the respective basic reproductive ratios of the two viruses. If the basic reproductive ratio of budding virus is greater than that of lytic virus and one, budding virus can survive. When antibody is established for both strains but the neutralization capacities are the same for both strains, consequence of the competition also depends only on the basic reproductive ratios of the budding and lytic viruses. Using two concrete forms of the viral production functions, we are also able to conclude that budding virus will outcompete if the rates of viral production, death rates of infected cells and neutralizing capacities of the antibodies are the same for budding and lytic viruses. In this case, budding strategy would have an evolutionary advantage. However, if
This article focuses on the study of an age-structured two-strain model with super-infection. The explicit expression of basic reproduction numbers and the invasion reproduction numbers corresponding to strain one and strain two are obtained. It is shown that the infection-free steady state is globally stable if the basic reproductive number $ R_0 $ is below one. Existence of strain one and strain two exclusive equilibria is established. Conditions for local stability or instability of the exclusive equilibria of the strain one and strain two are established. Existence of coexistence equilibrium is also obtained under the condition that both invasion reproduction numbers are larger than one.
In this paper, four different forms of a model to describe the dynamics of autoimmune diseases (with emphasis on Guillain-Barré syndrome) are proposed. In the first two cases, the immune response is supposed to be linear, while in the other two cases it is supposed to be in the Holling type III form. In case of linear immune response, the model has a basic reproduction number and shows forward bifurcation. However, in the nonlinear Holling type III immune response cases, the model does not have a basic reproduction number and two positive equilibria do exist for a range of the parameters. The stability analysis of the models steady states has been established. Our analytical results have been illustrated by numerical simulations.

PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - We examine a mathematical model for the transmission of Streptococcus Pneumoniae amongst young children when the carriage transmission coefficient depends on the serotype. Carriage means pneumococcal colonization. There are two sequence types (STs) spreading in a population each of which can be expressed as one of two serotypes. We derive the differential equation model for the carriage spread and perform an equilibrium and global stability analysis on it. A key parameter is the effective reproduction number R e. For R e ≤ 1, there is only the carriage-free equilibrium (CFE) and the carriage will die out whatever be the starting values. For R e , 1, unless the effective reproduction numbers of the two STs are equal, in addition to the CFE there are two carriage ...
Abstract: Local epidemic curves during the 1918 1919 influenza pandemic were often characterized by multiple epidemic waves. Identifying the underlying cause(s) of such waves may help manage future pandemics. We investigate the hypothesis that these waves were caused by people avoiding potentially infectious contacts a behaviour termed social distancing . We estimate the effective disease reproduction number and from it infer the maximum degree of social distancing that occurred during the course of the multiple-wave epidemic in Sydney, Australia. We estimate that, on average across the city, people reduced their infectious contact rate by as much as 38%, and that this was sufficient to explain the multiple waves of this epidemic. The basic reproduction number, R0, was estimated to be in the range of 1.6 2.0 with a preferred estimate of 1.8, in line with other recent estimates for the 1918 1919 influenza pandemic. The data are also consistent with a high proportion (more than 90%) of the ...

The COVID-19 pandemic poses a major global health threat. The rapid spread was facilitated by air travel although rigorous travel bans and lockdowns were able to slow down the spread. How does COVID-19 compare with other emerging viral diseases of the past two decades? Viral outbreaks differ in many ways, such as the individuals most at risk e.g. pregnant women for Zika and the elderly for COVID-19, their vectors of transmission, their fatality rate, and their transmissibility often measured as basic reproduction number. The risk of geographic spread via air travel differs significantly between emerging infectious diseases. COVID-19 is not associated with the highest case fatality rate compared with other emerging viral diseases such as SARS and Ebola, but the combination of a high reproduction number, superspreading events and a globally immunologically naïve population has led to the highest global number of deaths in the past 20 decade compared to any other pandemic.

Implements a simple, likelihood-based estimation of the reproduction number (R0) using a branching process with a Poisson likelihood. This model requires knowledge of the serial interval distribution, and dates of symptom onsets. Infectiousness is determined by weighting R0 by the probability mass function of the serial interval on the corresponding day. It is a simplified version of the model introduced by Cori et al. (2013) ,doi:10.1093/aje/kwt133,.. ...
We give a survey of results on global stability for deterministic compartmental epidemiological models. Using Lyapunov techniques we revisit a classical result, and give a simple proof. By the same methods we also give a new result on differential susceptibility and infectivity models with mass action and an arbitrary number of compartments. These models encompass the so-called differential infectivity and staged progression models. In the two cases we prove that if the basic reproduction ratio R0 \leq 1, then the disease free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable. If R0 | 1, there exists an unique endemic equilibrium which is asymptotically stable on the positive orthant.
We propose a Bayesian statistical framework for estimating the reproduction number R early in an epidemic. This method allows for the yet-unrecorded secondary cases if the estimate is obtained before the epidemic has ended. We applied our approach to the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic that started in February 2003 in Hong Kong. Temporal patterns of R estimated after 5, 10, and 20 days were similar. Ninety-five percent credible intervals narrowed when more data were available but stabilized after 10 days. Using simulation studies of SARS-like outbreaks, we have shown that the method may be used for early monitoring of the effect of control measures ...
The authors present an online tool for the data-driven inference and quantification of uncertainties for the reproduction number, as well as the time points of interventions for 51 European countries. The results quantify the rate of the diseases spread before and after interventions and provide a metric for the effectiveness of non-pharmaceutical interventions in different countries.
A striking characteristic of influenza pandemics is the multiple peaks of infection. For example, the United States has experienced two peaks of infection in each of the past four influenza pandemics, one peak during the summer months and a second peak during the typical flu season. In contrast, the number of infected individuals peaks only once during a seasonal flu. The mechanisms that cause the multiple peaks of infection during pandemic influenza seasons are not well understood. The goal of this project is to use agent-based modeling to investigate mechanisms that can generate two peaks of infection.. In this talk I will describe the susceptible-exposed-infectious-recovered (SEIR) agent-based model developed in Netlogo for simulating the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. The incubation and infectiousness periods are drawn from gamma distributions. The model is calibrated by matching known average daily contacts and key epidemiological quantities, such as the basic reproduction number, the number ...
Some consequences of erroneous results concerning eigenvalues in the recent literature of mathematical biology are highlighted. Furthermore, an improved stability criterion and the true value of the basic reproduction number is presented.
We study the traveling waves of reaction-diffusion equations for a diffusive SIR model. The existence of traveling waves is determined by the basic reproduction number of the corresponding ordinary differential equations and the minimal wave speed. Our proof is based on Schauder fixed point theorem and Laplace transform.
Transmission-blocking interventions aim to reduce the prevalence of infection in endemic communities by targeting Plasmodium within the insect host. Although many studies have reported the successful reduction of infection in the mosquito vector, direct evidence that there is an onward reduction in infection in the vertebrate host is lacking. Here we report the first experiments using a population, transmission-based study of Plasmodium berghei in Anopheles stephensi to assess the impact of a transmission-blocking drug upon both insect and host populations over multiple transmission cycles. We demonstrate that the selected transmission-blocking intervention, which inhibits transmission from vertebrate to insect by only 32%, reduces the basic reproduction number of the parasite by 20%, and in our model system can eliminate Plasmodium from mosquito and mouse populations at low transmission intensities. These findings clearly demonstrate that use of transmission-blocking interventions alone can eliminate
We present two new visualizations, case tree plots and checkerboard plots, for visualizing emerging zoonoses.. Zoonoses represent an estimated 58% of all human infectious diseases, and 73% of emerging infectious diseases. Recent examples of zoonotic outbreaks include H1N1, SARS and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, which have caused thousands of deaths combined. The current toolkit for visualizing data from these emerging diseases is limited.. Case tree and checkerboard plots were developed to address that gap. The visualizations are best suited for diseases like SARS for which there are a limited number of cases, with data available on human to human transmission. They a) allow for easy estimation of epidemiological parameters like basic reproduction number b) indicate the frequency of introductory events, e.g. spillovers in the case of zoonoses c) represent patterns of case attributes like patient sex both by generation and over time.. Case tree plots depict the emergence and growth of ...
Malaria infection is one of the most serious global health problems of our time. In this article the blood-stage dynamics of malaria in an infected host are studied by incorporating red blood cells, malaria parasitemia and immune effectors into a mathematical model with nonlinear bounded Michaelis-Menten-Monod functions describing how immune cells interact with infected red blood cells and merozoites. By a theoretical analysis of this model, we show that there exists a threshold value $R_0$, namely the basic reproduction number, for the malaria infection. The malaria-free equilibrium is global asymptotically stable if $R_0|1$. If $R_0|1$, there exist two kinds of infection equilibria: malaria infection equilibrium (without specific immune response) and positive equilibrium (with specific immune response). Conditions on the existence and stability of both infection equilibria are given. Moreover, it has been showed that the model can undergo Hopf bifurcation at the positive equilibrium and
At the national level, the number of new coronavirus infections is still small, even though there has been a slight increase in reported cases in July. During the last monitoring period from 27 July to 2 August 2020, a total of 74 new cases were reported to the communicable diseases register. In the week before, the number of reported cases was 51, showing a slight growth in the number of cases reported in the two previous weeks, 42 cases in the week beginning 13 July and 38 cases in the week beginning 6 July. Currently, the estimated basic reproduction number (RO) is 1.10-1.40, with a 90 per cent probability interval.. The incidence of new cases during the week beginning 27 July was 1.3 per 100,000 inhabitants. The incidence was higher in the Hospital Districts of Satakunta, Helsinki and Uusimaa, and Southwest Finland. Some of the new cases are related to identified infection chains and clusters of cases that are being monitored, but the source of all infections is not known. The infection ...
Fifty-nine of the 468 reports indicate that the infectee had symptoms earlier than the infector. Thus, presymptomatic transmission might be occurring. Given these negative-valued serial intervals, COVID-19 serial intervals seem to resemble a normal distribution more than the commonly assumed gamma or Weibull distributions (4,5), which are limited to positive values (Appendix). We estimate a mean serial interval for COVID-19 of 3.96 (95% CI 3.53-4.39) days, with an SD of 4.75 (95% CI 4.46-5.07) days, which is considerably lower than reported mean serial intervals of 8.4 days for severe acute respiratory syndrome (5) to 14.6 days (6) for Middle East respiratory syndrome. The mean serial interval is slightly but not significantly longer when the index case is imported (4.06 [95% CI 3.55-4.57] days) versus locally infected (3.66 [95% CI 2.84-4.47] days), but slightly shorter when the secondary transmission occurs within the household (4.03 [95% CI 3.12-4.94] days) versus outside the household (4.56 ...
Heterogeneity in the parameters governing the spread of infectious diseases is a common feature of real-world epidemics. It has been suggested that for pathogens with basic reproductive number R0,1, increasing heterogeneity makes extinction of disease more likely during the early rounds of transmission. The basic reproductive number R0 of the introduced pathogen may, however, be less than 1 after the introduction, and evolutionary changes are then required for R0 to increase to above 1 and the pathogen to emerge. In this paper, we consider how host heterogeneity influences the emergence of both non-evolving pathogens and those that must undergo adaptive changes to spread in the host population. In contrast to previous results, we find that heterogeneity does not always make extinction more likely and that if adaptation is required for emergence, the effect of host heterogeneity is relatively small. We discuss the application of these ideas to vaccination strategies. ...
The class of immunosuppressive lymphocytes known as regulatory T cells (Tregs) has been identified as a key component in preventing autoimmune diseases. Although Tregs have been incorporated previously in mathematical models of autoimmunity, we take a novel approach which emphasizes the importance of professional antigen presenting cells (pAPCs). We examine three possible mechanisms of Treg action (each in isolation) through ordinary differential equation (ODE) models. The immune response against a particular autoantigen is suppressed both by Tregs specific for that antigen and by Tregs of arbitrary specificities, through their action on either maturing or already mature pAPCs or on autoreactive effector T cells. In this deterministic approach, we find that qualitative long-term behaviour is predicted by the basic reproductive ratio R (0) for each system. When R (0) , 1, only the trivial equilibrium exists and is stable; when R (0)>1, this equilibrium loses its stability and a stable non-trivial ...
COVID-19 and influenza are probably fairly similarly infections.. A single ill person with COVID-19 can infect more people than a single ill person with influenza. COVID-19 has a higher reproduction number of 2.0-2.5. This means one person will infect, on average, 2 to 2.5 people.. Seasonal influenza has a reproduction number of about 1.28, meaning one person will infect, on average, between one and two people.. But this is balanced by influenzas ability to infect more quickly. It takes, on average, 3 days to become sick with the flu, but you can still transmit it before symptoms emerge.. It takes 5-6 days to become sick with COVID-19. We still dont know if you can be infectious before getting coronavirus symptoms, but it doesnt seem to be a major driver of transmission.. So influenza can spread faster than COVID-19.. The case fatality rate of COVID-19 is higher than that of seasonal influenza (4% versus 0.1%), although as noted above, the true fatality of COVID-19 is still not ...
Abstract: We attempted to quantify the possible spread of the pandemic across a network of 52 major cities and to predict the effect of vaccination against the pandemic strain, if available. Predictions are based on simulations from a stochastic SEIR model. Parameters used in the simulations are set to values consistent with recent estimations from the outbreak in Mexico.We show that a two-wave pandemic dynamic may be observed in Southern hemisphere because of seasonal constraints for a maximum value of the basic reproductive number (R0, max) within a city equal to 1.5 and a mean generation interval (GI) of 2 days. In this case and in the absence of vaccination, attack rates may reach 46% when considering a completely susceptible population. More severe scenarios characterized by higher values of R0, max (2.2) and GI (3.1) yield an attack rate of 77%. By extrapolation, we find that mass vaccination in all countries (i.e. up to 50% of the population) implemented 6 months after the start of the ...
where t1 is the incubation period and t2 is the infectious period of the disease. The above formula assumes that infected individuals are not infectious during their incubation period (t1). Hence, we can use this formula to estimate the R0 of AHC as infected individuals become infectious once they become symptomatic. Moreover, the incubation period (t1) for AHC is small and ranges between 1 and 2 days [2] while the infectious period (t2) is estimated to range from 3 to 7 days with a mean of 5 days [1]. Hence, we estimate a reproductive number for AHC ranging between 2.7 and 5.7 with a mean of 4.1 (t1 = 1.5 days, t2 = 5 days). The estimated basic reproductive number is consistent with the rapid initial increase in the number of cases for approximately four weeks (this has been observed in other AHC outbreaks [1]). After the first four weeks of the outbreak, the number of cases decreases rapidly until the outbreak is over (Figure 1). This behavior can be attributed to the rapid depletion of ...
Newsroom America) -- Established Aedes-mosquito population could spread the Zika virus in Europe this summer if infected travelers introduce the virus. An analysis of temperatures, vectorial capacity, basic reproductive number (R0), and air traveler flows suggests parts of Southern Europe may be at risk for Zika outbreaks between June and August. This according to a study, led by Umeå University researchers in Sweden and published in the journal EBioMedicine.. We know warm climates create the kind of conditions suitable for mosquito-borne illnesses to spread, says Joacim Rocklöv, researcher at Umeå Universitys Unit for Epidemiology and Global Health and co-author of the article.. Vectorial capacity depends on a number of parameters but in general, warmer temperatures increase the rate in which the female mosquitos bite, the mosquito virus reproduction, and their virus transmission risk. The presence of established Aedes mosquito populations, the warmer climate and the coinciding peak flow ...

I have recently studied several models which exhibit a common phenomenon, referred to in mathematical epidemiology as a backward bifurcation, which implies that a particular phenomenon (usually an outbreak of an infectious disease) can persist in a population under certain conditions which would not normally (that is, according to its basic reproductive number R0) allow it to do so. Mathematically, this implies that there are multiple transition cycles within the population as a whole, and that although the phenomenon is not reproducing well within the population as a whole, it is reproducing sufficiently well within some subgroup of the population to create a reservoir, if that subgroup begins sufficiently large. Biologically speaking, this means that these processes have a robust structure which makes them more difficult to eradicate. This complicates the control of such diseases (or other phenomena, such as eating disorders, which can be considered to be peer-pressure-driven), but also ...

We propose a model of competition of nn species in a chemostat, with constant input of some species. We mainly emphasize the case that can lead to coexistence in the chemostat in a non-trivial way, i.e., where the n−1n−1 less competitive species are in the input. We prove that if the inputs satisfy a constraint, the coexistence between the species is obtained in the form of a globally asymptotically stable (GAS) positive equilibrium, while a GAS equilibrium without the dominant species is achieved if the constraint is not satisfied. This work is round up with a thorough study of all the situations that can arise when having an arbitrary number of species in the chemostat inputs; this always results in a GAS equilibrium that either does or does not encompass one of the species that is not present in the input.

Barley and cereal yellow dwarf viruses (B/CYDV) are a suite of aphid-vectored pathogens that affect diverse host communities, including economically important crops. Coinfection of a single host by multiple strains of B/CYDV can result in elevated virulence, incidence, and transmission rates. We develop a model for a single host, two pathogen strains, and n vector species, modeled by a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. A single parameter describes the degree of relatedness of the strains and the amount of cross-protection between them. We compute the basic and type reproduction numbers for the model and analytically prove the (conditional) stability of the disease-free equilibrium. We demonstrate numerically that, although the basic reproduction number describes stability of the disease-free equilibrium, the type reproduction numbers better describe the individual behavior of each strain and the dynamics of coinfection. We then conduct a sensitivity analysis on the components ...

The status of measles elimination is best summarized by evaluation of the effective reproduction number R; maintaining R,1 is necessary and sufficient to achieve elimination. Previously described methods for estimating R from the sizes and durations of chains of measles transmission and the proportion of cases imported were applied to the measles data reported for the United States in 1997-1999. These comprised 338 cases, forming 165 chains of transmission, of which 43 had ,1 case. One hundred seven cases were classified as importations. All 3 methods suggested that R was in the range 0.6-0.7. Results were not sensitive to the minimum size and duration of outbreak considered (so long as single-case chains were excluded) or to exclusion of chains without a known imported source. These results demonstrate that susceptibility to measles was beneath the epidemic threshold and that endemic transmission was eliminated.. ...
Stochastic computer simulations were used for quantifying the effect of selecting on prion protein (PrP) genotype on the risk of major outbreaks of classical scrapie and the rate of genetic progress in performance in commercial sheep populations already undergoing selection on performance. The risk of a major outbreak on a flock was measured by the basic reproduction ratio (R0). The effectiveness of different PrP selection strategies for reducing the population risk was assessed by the percentage of flocks with R0 , 1. When compared with the scenario where there was no selection on PrP genotype, selection against the VRQ allele had a minimal impact on genetic progress for performance traits. However, this strategy was not sufficient to eliminate the population risk after 15 years of selection when the initial frequency of the ARR allele was relatively low. More extreme PrP selection strategies aimed at increasing the frequency of the ARR allele and decreasing the frequency of the VRQ allele led ...

DOI: 10.23952/jnfa.2020.15. Received November 29, 2019; Accepted April 6, 2020; Published April 24, 2020. Abstract. In this paper, a fractional-order mathematical model with control is constructed to describe the transmission of tuberculosis. Two cases are considered: the constant control and the optimal control. In the former case, the stability conditions of the disease-free equilibrium and the endemic equilibrium are obtained. In the second case, optimal control theory is applied to the corresponding model. The optimal control formula is derived by use of the Hamiltonian function and the Pontryagins Maximum Principle. In addition, some numerical simulations are performed to support our analytic results.. How to Cite this Article ...
This paper presents a Filippov plant disease model incorporating an economic threshold of infected-susceptible ratio, above which control strategies of replanting or removing are needed to be carried out. Based on the Filippov approach, we study the sliding mode dynamics and further the global dynamics. It is shown that there is a unique equilibrium, which is a disease-free equilibrium, an endemic equilibrium or a pseudo-equilibrium. Moreover, the equilibrium is proved to be globally asymptotically stable. Our results indicate that the control goal can be achieved by taking appropriate replanting and removing rate.
A delayed predator-prey system with Holling type II functional response and stage structure for both the predator and the prey is investigated. By analyzing the corresponding characteristic equations, the local stability of each of the feasible equilibria of the system is addressed and the existence of a Hopf bifurcation at the coexistence equilibrium is established. By means of persistence theory on infinite dimensional systems, it is proved that the system is permanent. By using Lyapunov functions and the LaSalle invariant principle, the global stability of each of the feasible equilibria of the model is discussed. Numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate the main theoretical results.
Ive been writing these updates without much elaboration on the thinking behind them. This time Ill be a bit more verbose -- apologies to those who prefer things concise.] Im seeing talk of Herd Immunity claims over the summer having been proven wrong, in light of clear Seasonality as the obvious explainer. Its possible both of these are wrong, and both of them are right. Or, more exactly, that: both of them is right. It is a common misconception (and frequent straw man) that herd immunity is some universal threshold where a pathogen stops spreading. Lets build this up from first principles: In a given context, one sick person, on average, will infect some number of other people before they are no longer contagious (whether because improved or dead). This number is typically called the reproduction number, or `R`. (Note that does not say anything about how long it takes for that one person to infect `R` others on average, just that it does, which means it is not directly inferable from the ...
The overall aim of this review was to assemble the evidence that will help unravel the genetic components underlying differences in response to TB. Research in livestock host variability in response to BTB could deliver genetic markers such as SNPs associated with resistance. Implementation could be by the use of genetic markers associated with TB resistance/susceptibility in existing breeding programmes or even the identification of genetically susceptible sires to avoid their use in high BTB prevalence regions. The latter approach could help to achieve the goal set by Cox et al. (2005) who argued that even modest reduction in the reproduction number of M. bovis in cattle could bring the current epidemic under control.. It is possible that M. bovis and cattle may have reached an evolutionary stalemate, as has been proposed for humans (Muse Davis & Ramakrishnan 2009). While this proposed tolerance of host for pathogen and pathogen for host may well be an example of coevolution to maximize the ...
2,588 new COVID-19 infections were reported over the past week. That is 1,259 more than the number of confirmed cases reported last week and 795 more than the week before that. Hospital admissions (current or previous) due to COVID-19 were reported during the past week for 44 patients. That is 21 more than last week. 6 deaths of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 patients were reported, 3 less than the week before. The number of new people who tested positive in the Netherlands has almost doubled compared to the previous week. Approximately 10,000 fewer people have been tested in the GGD test lanes in the past week compared to the week before that. The percentage of positive tests in the Netherlands increased this week from 1.1% in the week of 20 July to 2.3% in the week of 27 July. Just as last week, the reproduction number is above 1.. On Tuesday afternoon, Jaap van Dissel spoke on behalf of the RIVM at a technical briefing about corona together with GGD in the House of Representatives. Van Dissel ...

Process models offer opportunities to explore the effectiveness of different programme and policy alternatives by varying input behaviours and model parameters to reflect programmatic/policy effects. The Asian Epidemic Model (AEM) has been designed to reflect the primary groups and transmission modes driving HIV transmission in Asia. The user adjusts AEM fitting parameters until HIV prevalence outputs from the model agree with observed epidemiological trends. The AEM resultant projections are closely tied to the epidemiological and behavioural data in the country. In Thailand and Cambodia they have shown good agreement with observed epidemiological trends in surveillance populations and with changes in HIV transmission modes, AIDS cases, male:female ratios over time, and other external validation checks. By varying the input behaviours and STI trends, one can examine the impact of different prevention efforts on the future course of the epidemic. In conclusion, the AEM is a semi-empirical model, ...
