Modeling the probability distribution model for controlling the prevalence of disease outbreak
Author(s): Akintunde Oyetunde A
Abstract: This research work investigates the development and benefits of model for disease transmission through a population. Demonstration on how to characterize a disease as it is spread in terms of the portions of the population that it affects, as well as how to evaluate and explore preventative and controlled measures to limit the disease’s effects are well examined. For the purposes of this work, exploration into the sensitivity of the framework that involves using a probabilistic model checker has to changes in the underlying disease transmission model was shown. The use of publicity campaigns to expose high proportions of large populations to messages through routine uses of existing media, such as television, radio, and newspapers was considered and found to be effective in controlling the transmission of the prevalence of disease among human population.
