From: Mathematical model of the spread of COVID-19 in Plateau State, Nigeria

Parameter | Description |
---|---|

\(\beta_{E} ,\beta_{{I_{A} }} ,\beta_{{I_{S} }}\) | Rate of infection transmission among the exposed transmitting, asymptomatic infectious and symptomatic infectious groups |

\(c_{f} ,c_{d}\) | Proportion of people that adopt control measures using face masks and practice of social distancing |

\(f\) | Fraction of exposed group that becomes symptomatic infectious undetected group \(I_{S}\) |

\(1 - f\) | Fraction of exposed group that becomes asymptomatic infectious undetected group \(I_{A}\) |

\(\delta\) | Rate of progression of exposed group E to fully infectious groups \(I_{S}\),\(I_{A}\) |

\(\alpha_{1} ,\alpha_{2}\) | Rate at which people are quarantined from both asymptomatic and symptomatic infectious groups \(I_{A}\),\(I_{S} .\) |

\(\gamma ,r_{1} ,r_{2}\) | Recovery rates from quarantined, asymptomatic and symptomatic groups, respectively |

\(\pi ,\mu ,\mu_{i} (i = 1,2)\) | Recruitment through births, natural death and deaths from COVID-19, respectively |
