For decades, dengue virus has been a cause of major public health concern in Costa Rica, due to its landscape and climatic conditions that favor the circumstances in which the vector, Aedes aegypti, thrives. The emergence and introduction throughout tropical and subtropical countries of the chikungunya virus, as of 2014, challenged Costa Rican health authorities to provide a correct diagnosis since it is also transmitted by the same vector and infected hosts may share similar symptoms. We study… 
TRANSMISSION DYNAMICS OF DENGUE IN COSTA RICA: THE ROLE OF HOSPITALIZATIONS DINÁMICA DE LA TRANSMISIÓN DE DENGUE EN COSTA RICA: EL ROL DE LAS HOSPITALIZACIONES
TLDR
A compartmental model is constructed that includes the role of hospitalized individuals in the transmission dynamics of dengue in Costa Rica and the global stability of the disease-free equilibrium is established.

TLDR
The results obtained confirm that the strategy, which provides resources to prevent the transmission of Chikungunya and provides sufficient resources for testing, applying average social distancing, and quarrying the affected individuals, has a significant effect on flattening the epidemic curves and is the most suitable strategy in Yemen.
A Comprehensive Prospective Study to Understand Chikungunya Infection in Delhi Region during 2010-2011
TLDR
Chikungunya virus has emerged in Delhi during 2010 and contributed to about 30-40% of fever and arthralgia, while anti-CHIKV IgM can persist for more than a year with complaints of periodic polyarthralgian symptoms.
Hospitalization in the transmission of dengue dynamics: The impact on public health policies.
TLDR
A compartmental model is constructed that includes the risk of hospitalization and its impact on public health policies, as well as a sensitivity analysis on basic reproductive number parameters, to establish the local and global stability of the disease-free equilibrium.
Parameter estimates of the 2016-2017 Zika outbreak in Costa Rica: An Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) approach.
TLDR
This work looked at the 2016-2017 Zika outbreak and explored the transmission dynamics using weekly reported data and a nonlinear differential equation single-outbreak model with sexual transmission, as well as host availability for vector-feeding, to estimate key parameters, fit the data and compute the basic reproductive number distribution.
Mathematical and Statistical models as tools for the control of mosquito-borne diseases: The experience of Costa Rica
TLDR
This work highlights results and current research conducted in Costa Rica using mathematical and statistical tools to develop optimal strategies for mosquito controland mosquito-borne disease prevention/control methods in the country.
DENGUE MODEL WITH EARLY-LIFE STAGE OF VECTORS AND AGE-STRUCTURE WITHIN HOST
TLDR
An epidemic model for the transmission of dengue fever with an early-life stage in the vector dynamics and age-structure within hosts and the basic reproductive number and demographic threshold are computed to study the local and global stability of the infection-free state.

The history of dengue outbreaks in the Americas.
TLDR
The outbreak history from 1600 to 2010 was categorized into four phases: Introduction of dengue in the Americas, marked by a successful eradication of the mosquito in 18 continental countries by 1962, and characterized by a marked increase in the number of outbreaks.
Clinical, epidemiologic, and virologic features of dengue in the 1998 epidemic in Nicaragua.
TLDR
Interestingly, secondary infection was not significantly correlated with DHF/DSS, in contrast to previous studies in Southeast Asia, as evidenced by the analysis of this epidemic.
Vertical Transmission in a Two-Strain Model of Dengue Fever
TLDR
The pioneering modeling ideas of Ross and MacDonald are applied, motivated by the context of the 2000–2001 dengue outbreak in Peru, to assess the dynamics of multi-strain competition and it is shown that lower transmission rates of DENV-2 Asian are sufficient for displacing DENv-2 American in the presence of vertical transmission.
Eventual Role of Asymptomatic Cases of Dengue for the Introduction and Spread of Dengue Viruses in Non-Endemic Regions
TLDR
Data from English and French literatures was analyzed to assess if viremia in asymptomatic dengue infections might be sufficient to represent a true risk and a number of new ways of contamination in man by d Dengue viruses were recently described.

A systematic review of mathematical models of mosquito-borne pathogen transmission: 1970–2010
TLDR
Although the analysis illustrated a growing acknowledgement of geographical, ecological and epidemiological complexities in modelling transmission, most models during the past 40 years closely resemble the Ross–Macdonald model.
Nonlinear impacts of climatic variability on the density‐dependent regulation of an insect vector of disease
TLDR
Density-dependent regulation was strong in both populations and analysis of climatic forcing indicated that populations were more sensitive to climatic variables with low kurtosis, i.e., climatic factors highly variable around the median, rainfall in Puerto Rico, and temperature in Thailand.
