An analysis of the model for dengue transmission with two strains
Issue Date: 
Ang, K. C., & Li, Z. (2000, December). An analysis of the model for dengue transmission with two strains. Paper presented at the Electronic Proceedings of the 5th Asian Technology Conference in Mathematics, Chiang Mai, Thailand.
We study the SIR model of transmission of dengue fever with two pathogen strains. A
model is constructed to study the effects of different factors on the course of the epidemic. The
difference between the two strains is not discussed. Instead, we focus on the trends of primary
infection and secondary infection. Our analysis shows that factors related to the host (such as host
population) do not change the pattern the spread significantly. In contrast, factors related to the
vector (such as vector population, vector life span and biting rate) have a more significant effect
on the outbreak of secondary infection.
