Re: H1N1 Update

As of Friday, Nov. 20, we have experienced 232 cases of influenza among students on the Troy campus. Some 18 students have active cases of the illness. Of those, none are currently in isolation rooms and 18 are recuperating at home with their families. The remaining 214 students are fully recovered. In addition, we continue to receive reports of small numbers of faculty and staff with influenza-like illnesses.

SIR model for epidemics(compartmental model)

N: number of individuals in the population

S: number of Susceptible individuals

I: number of Infective individuals

R: number of Removed (recovered/dead) individuals

homogeneous mixing:

SI with rate  (infection rate)

IR with rate  (recovery rate)

si (infection rate)

ir (recovery rate)

Ro: basic reproduction number

(the # of individuals a sick person will infect)

SIR model for epidemics

s=S/N: density of Susceptible individuals

i=I/N: density of Infective individuals

r=R/N: density of Removed (recovered/dead) individuals

SIR model for epidemics

s: susceptible

i: infected

r: recovered

si (infection rate)

ir (recovery rate)

How do you control epidemics?

make

smaller, or

How do you control epidemics?

fraction of people got the disease by time t (cumulative)

make

fraction of people sick at a given time t

• Epidemic controls:
• Reduce s(t): vaccination
• Reduce : wash hands, isolate sick persons,

shut down public events, close schools

• Increase : better/faster acting medicine, antivirals

smaller, or

Mass Vaccination

i.e., at any time (preferably before the outbreak), if we can sufficiently reduce

the density of susceptible individuals (by vaccinating), the epidemics will die out

for example,

for Ro = 1.5  sc = 0.66, i.e., roughly 33% percent of the population should be vaccinated

for Ro = 3.0  sc = 0.33, i.e., roughly 66% percent of the population should be vaccinated

density of vaccinated individuals

i.e., for a successful vaccination campaign,

the fraction of the population that should be vaccinated:

(within the limitations of the simple SIR model)

Game Theory and Vaccination
• “For a population with sufficiently high vaccine coverage, a disease can be eradicated without vaccinating everyone.
• Therefore, as coverage increases, there is a greater individual incentive not to vaccinate, since non-vaccinators can gain the benefits of herd immunity (population-level immunity) without the risk of vaccine complications”
