Early characteristics of the COVID-19 outbreak predict the subsequent epidemic scope
Objectives: The mostly-resolved first wave of the COVID-19 epidemic in China provided a unique opportunity to investigate how the initial characteristics of the COVID-19 outbreak predictits subsequent magnitude. Methods: ...
The basic reproduction number R0 and effectiveness of reactive interventions during dengue epidemics: the 2002 dengue outbreak in Easter Island, Chile.
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2013)
We use a stochastic simulation model to explore the effect of reactive intervention strategies during the 2002 dengue outbreak in the small population of Easter Island, Chile. We quantified the effect of interventions on ...
Spread pattern of the first dengue epidemic in the city of Salvador, Brazil
(BioMed Central, 2019)
The dynamics of the AIDS epidemic in Brazil: a space-time analysis in the period 1987-1995
(The Brazilian Journal of Infectious Diseases, 2010)
First, second and potential third generation spreads of the COVID-19 epidemic in mainland China: an early exploratory study incorporating location-based service data of mobile devices
Objectives: The outbreak of atypical pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has currently become a global concern. The generations of the epidemic spread are not well known, yet these are critical parameters ...
Challenges of ongoing Covid and Ebola epidemics amidst violence and other epidemics in DR Congo
(European Public Health Association, 2021)
Modeling scenarios for the end of AIDS
(Oxford University Press, 2014)
At the end of 2012, 3 decades after the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was first identified, neither a cure nor a fully preventive vaccine was available. Despite multiple efforts, the epidemic remains an exceptional ...
Stochastic lattice gas model describing the dynamics of the SIRS epidemic process
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
We study a stochastic process describing the onset of spreading dynamics of an epidemic in a population composed of individuals of three classes: susceptible (S), infected (I), and recovered (R). The stochastic process is ...
Complexity and anisotropy in host morphology make populations less susceptible to epidemic outbreaks
(ROYAL SOC, 2010)
One of the challenges in epidemiology is to account for the complex morphological structure of hosts such as plant roots, crop fields, farms, cells, animal habitats and social networks, when the transmission of infection ...
Epidemics in networks of spatially correlated three-dimensional root-branching structures
(ROYAL SOC, 2011)
Using digitized images of the three-dimensional, branching structures for root systems of bean seedlings, together with analytical and numerical methods that map a common susceptible-infected- recovered (`SIR`) epidemiological ...
