Modelling interventions during a dengue outbreak
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-03)
We present a stochastic dynamical model for the transmission of dengue that considers the co-evolution of the spatial dynamics of the vectors (Aedes aegypti) and hosts (human population), allowing the simulation of control ...
What caused the 2012 dengue outbreak in Pucallpa, Peru? A socio-ecological autopsy
Dengue is highly endemic in Peru, with increases in transmission particularly since vector re-infestation of the country in the 1980s. Pucallpa, the second largest city in the Peruvian Amazon, experienced a large outbreak ...
