    In this paper, a deterministic model is formulated in the aim of performing a thorough investigation of the transmission dynamics of influenza. The main advantage of our model compared to existing models is that it takes into account the effects of hospitalization as well as the diffusion. The proposed model consisting of a dynamical system of partial differential equations with diffusion Author: Mudassar Imran, Mohamed Ben-Romdhane, Ali R. Ansari, Helmi Temimi. The Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) interpolation and Geographic Information System (GIS) techniques were used in mapping the spatial diffusion of influenza risk zones. The results show that there is a significance correlation between influenza outbreaks and climate factors for Cited by: 4.

      Interestingly, the capacity of freight transportation has the most significant impact on the viral diffusion (mean = to , BF = ), indicating the movement of avian influenza virus is mainly dependent on the human transportation, not through wild bird by: Diffusion of a Pandemic through a Global Transportation Network. The above map provides a synthetic representation of how an (influenza) pandemic could spread through a global transportation network. The assumption in this scenario is a virulent strain of influenza in the line of the Spanish Flu (H1N1) with an incubation phase of about 3 to 4.

    Moreover, the rapid diffusion of influenza virus throughout Peru, even in the more remote regions, also serves as a potent reminder of how quickly influenza virus can disseminate. We identified Lima and Puerto Maldonado as possible diffusion hubs for influenza virus; perhaps both cities could be prioritized for heightened influenza surveillance.

Svenn-Erik Mamelund, in International Encyclopedia of Public Health (Second Edition), The Spanish Influenza of – The Spanish influenza was one of the most devastating outbreaks of disease in history (Crosby, ; Phillips and Killingray, ).From unclear origin, it spread around the globe in three waves in –19; nearly a third of the world population tallying billion.

The partial differential equation (PDE) model discussed in this chapter pertains to spatial and temporal effects of vaccination and diffusion in influenza epidemics. The model consists of five 1D PDEs with the dependent variables: (i) S (x, t), susceptibles; (ii) V (x, t), vaccinated; (iii) E (x, t), exposed; (iv) I (x, t), infected; and (v) R.

The Spanish Influenza pandemic of was the worst pandemic of modern times, claiming over 30 million lives in less than six months. In the hardest hit societies, everything else was put aside in a bid to cope with its ravages.

It left millions orphaned and medical science desperate to find its cause. The Diffusion of the Influenza Pandemic of in Hartford, Connecticut Peter Tuckel, Sharon L. Sassler, Richard Maisel, Andrew Leykam; Social Science History; Cambridge University Press; Vol Number 2, Summer ; pp.

Despite the enormous advances in virology and epidemiology, many fundamental scientific questions concerning the origins, virulence, and diffusion of influenza remain unanswered. The origin of the pandemic remains unidentified, and that virulent strain itself was genetically unlike any other known virus examined since that time.

This page provides an overview of how pandemics diffuse through global transport systems. Concerning the coronavirus, we are currently in the critical translocation phase which will likely determine if we get a containment or a pandemic. The diffusion was strongly influenced by the structure and connectivity of air transport services from Wuhan.

Characteristics of the influenza strain determined its contagiousness, its widespread diffusion and its virulence. Bacterial pneumonias occur in epidemic form rarely, but it was widely noted by contemporaries (and later researchers) that the patients who died of ‘influenza’ actually died of a secondary bacterial by: 4.Antimicrobial susceptibility testing of H.
