A Multilayer Network Model implementation for COVID-19
We present a numerical implementation for a multilayer network to model the transmission of Covid-19 or other diseases with a similar transmission mechanism. The model incorporates different contact types between individuals ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
The role of mobility and sanitary measures on the delay of community transmission of COVID-19 in Costa Rica
The aim of this paper is to infer the effects that change on human mobility had on the transmission dynamics during the first four months of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in Costa Rica, which could have played a role in delaying ...
A multilayer network model of Covid-19: implications in public health policy in Costa Rica
Successful partnerships between researchers, experts, and public health authorities have been critical to navigate the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide. In this collaboration, mathematical models have played ...
