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 ...
Parameter estimates of the 2016-2017 Zika outbreak in Costa Rica: An Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) approach
In Costa Rica, the first known cases of Zika were reported in 2016. We looked at the 2016-2017 Zika outbreak and explored the transmission dynamics using weekly reported data. A nonlinear differential equation single-outbreak ...
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 ...
Mathematical and Statistical models as tools for the control ofmosquito-borne diseases: The experience of Costa Rica
The modeling of infectious diseases provides valuable input in the development of mitigating strategies and implementation of public health interventions. We highlight results and current research conducted in Costa Rica ...
