- Epidemic model, improved SEIR model.
The Ebola epidemic is more and more severe. To optimize the eradication of EVD, we take Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone as the object of research, first we build suspected- exposed-I nfectious-dead (SEID) model based on the popular SEIR model, since there are no effective medicine till now and the mortality rate of EVD is pretty high. It turns out that the curve of SEID agrees with actual data very well. Then we establish a suspected-exposed-infectious-quit (SEIQ) model by modifying the previous SEID model, which means that infected people quit the class either recovered or dead. Then we address the SEIQ problem and conclude that the growth rate of infectious people decreased obviously when medicine plays a part.
