A Two-Patch Epidemic Model with Nonlinear Reinfection
Un modelo epidémico de dos poblaciones con reinfección no lineal
The propagation of infectious diseases and its impact on individuals play a major role in disease dynamics, and it is important to incorporate population heterogeneity into efforts to study diseases. As a simplistic but ...
Transmission dynamics of Dengue in Costa Rica: The role of hospitalizations
Dinámica de la transmisión de dengue en Costa Rica: El rol de las hospitalizaciones
For decades, dengue virus has caused major problems for public health officials in tropical and subtropical countries around the world. We construct a compartmental model that includes the role of hospitalized individuals ...
Dengue model with early-life stage of vectors and age-structure within host
Modelo de dengue con etapa temprana en vectores y estructura de edad en el huésped
We construct an epidemic model for the transmission of dengue fever with an early-life stage in the vector dynamics and age-structure within hosts. The early-life stage of the vector is modeled via a general function that ...
Climate-Driven Statistical Models as Effective Predictors of Local Dengue Incidence in Costa Rica: A Generalized Additive Model and Random Forest Approach
Variables climáticas como predictores de la incidencia de dengue en Costa Rica: Un enfoque de modelo aditivo generalizado y bosques aleatorios
Climate has been an important factor in shaping the distribution and incidence of dengue cases in tropical and subtropical countries. In CostaRica, a tropical country with distinctive micro-climates, dengue has been endemic ...
