Dynamics and control of infectious disease epidemics: compartmental modelling of variations in infectiousness and symptoms during infection

Abstract:

Through a series of case studies, this thesis explores how changes in infectiousness and symptoms during viral infections can be represented and inferred using compartmental models, in order to provide insights on epidemics in human populations.

First, we consider a compartmental model of Ebola virus disease outbreaks which relaxes the standard assumption made in epidemiological modelling studies that all symptomatic hosts are equally likely to be detected. We show that accounting ...
