Factors of infection rate

I refer to J.H. Jones’ Notes on R0. Preliminaries The standard SIR model consists of a system of three differential equations ds/dt = -βsi di/dt = βsi – νi dr/dt = νi for the fractions s, i, r of susceptible, infected, and recovered (removed) individuals, dt = 1 day. β is the infection rate, i.e. […]

Factors of infection rate

I refer to J.H. Jones’ Notes on R0. Preliminaries The standard SIR model consists of a system of three differential equations $$ds/dt = -\beta s i$$ $$di/dt = \beta s i – \nu i$$ $$dr/dt = \nu i$$ for the fractions $s, i, r$ of susceptible, infected, and recovered (removed) individuals, $dt$ = 1 day.
