Aims and objectives

Aims and Objectives

  • To create a universal modified SIR model for vector-borne diseases to make predictions of the spread of diseases


Rationale

Rationale

  • The SIR Model currently used is extremely simplistic

  • Only considers three compartments, namely Susceptible, Infected and Recovered

  • Two directions of change, namely from Susceptible to Infected or from Infected to Recovered.


Rationale1

Rationale

  • Since most vector-borne diseases do not work in such a way, this project aims to modify this SIR model so that it can encompass much more factors that the original SIR model

    • Death rates

    • Movement from Recovered to Susceptible

    • Make it more applicable to real life, thus increasing its usability in accurately predicting the spread of such vector-borne diseases.


Introduction

Introduction

  • A vector-borne disease is transmitted by a pathogenic microorganism from an infected host to another organism

  • HCI will be creating a model using Dengue Fever

  • AOS will be creating a model using a tick-borne disease


Literature review dengue fever

Literature Review – Dengue Fever

  • A very old disease that reemerged in the past 20 years

  • Transmitted via mosquito bites

  • In 2009, there were a total of 4452 cases of dengue fever in Singapore, of which there were 8 deaths


Literature review aedes mosquitoes

Literature Review – Aedes Mosquitoes

  • Aedes mosquitoes refers to the entire genus of mosquito – over 700 different species

  • Multiple species able to transmit dengue fever

  • Have characteristic black and white stripe markings on body and legs

Aedes albopictus – the most invasive mosquito in the world

Literature review ticks

Literature Review - Ticks

  • Ticks have a two-year life cycle

  • Ticks acquire a vector-borne disease by feeding on an infected host

  • Once infected, ticks transmit the disease by feeding on an uninfected host

Lone Star Tick

Deer Tick


Literature review sir

Literature Review - SIR

  • Susceptible

  • Infected

  • Recovered


Literature review sir1

Literature Review - SIR

  • Neuwirth, E., & Arganbright, D. (2004). The active modeler: mathematical modeling with Microsoft Excel. Belmont, CA: Thomson/Brooks/Cole.

    • Introduces basic modeling techniques such as dynamic modeling and graphing

    • Rates of change are shown to have relations between the three compartments: S(t), I(t) and R(t) in the subtopic simple epidemics.

    • Calculus can be used to help us solve the research questions mentioned.


Sir equations

SIR - Equations

  • S’(t)=-k∙S(t)∙I(t)

  • I’(t)=-S’(t)-R'(t)

  • R’(t)=c∙I(t)

    • k – Transmittal constant

    • c – Recovery rate


Research questions

Research Questions

  • Are we able to predict the spread of a disease using the SIR Model?

  • What kind of situations are the basic SIR Model unable to take into account?

  • How can the basic SIR Model be modified to handle real life situations effectively?

  • Is there a pattern in the spread of vector-borne diseases?


Fields of mathematics differentiation

Fields of Mathematics - Differentiation

  • Used to determine the rate of change of a function

  • Infection and recovery obtained via differentiation based on data acquired

  • e.g. With the weekly number of cases of the disease, we are able to find the best fit graph, the function of which we can then differentiate to determine the infection rate in the form of a function.


Methodology

Methodology

  • Begin with a simple SIR model

  • Develop variables needed to modify the model

  • Attempt to modify the model to incorporate all vector-borne diseases
