During an epidemic, infectious individuals might not be detectable until some time after becoming infected. The studies show that carriers with mild or no symptoms are the main contributors to the transmission of a virus within the population. The average time it takes to develop the symptoms causes a delay in the spread dynamics of the disease. When considering the influence of delay on the disease propagation in epidemic networks, depending on the value of the time-delay and the network…

Universal Features of Epidemic Models Under Social Distancing Guidelines
TLDR
The main objective of this study is to reduce the disease burden in a population, here measured as the peak of the infected population, while simultaneously minimizing the length of time the population is socially distanced, utilizing both a single period of social distancing as well as periodic relaxation.
Investigating Dynamics of COVID-19 Spread and Containment with Agent-Based Modeling
TLDR
This work revisits Epstein’s “coupled contagion dynamics of fear and disease” model in order to extend and adapt it to explore fear-driven behavioral adaptations and their impact on efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effect of Small-World Networks on Epidemic Propagation and Intervention
TLDR
Among the four intervention strategies tested, only one strategy—the targeted vaccination—proves to be effective for containing epidemics, a finding supported by a simulation of the severe acute respiratory syndrome epidemic in a large-scale realistic social contact network in Portland, OR.
Analysis and Control of Epidemics: A Survey of Spreading Processes on Complex Networks
TLDR
Various solved and open problems in the development, analysis, and control of epidemic models are reviewed and presented.
A convex framework for optimal investment on disease awareness in social networks
TLDR
This work considers the problem of controlling the propagation of an epidemic outbreak in an arbitrary network of contacts by investing on disease awareness throughout the network and proposes a convex framework to find cost-optimal allocation of resources.
Investigating dynamics of COVID-19 spread and containment with agent-based modeling
TLDR
An epidemic agent-based model that simulates the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic is shown to be able to generate an important aspect of the pandemic: multiple waves of infection.

Traffic optimization to control epidemic outbreaks in metapopulation models
TLDR
A convex optimization framework is proposed to find cost-optimal approaches to traffic control in epidemic outbreaks by controlling the traffic between subpopulations in metapopulation models.
