Chikungunya and dengue viruses are transmitted by mosquitoes of genus Aedes. Based on a mathematical model dealing with arboviruses transmission that encompasses human and mosquito populations, the risks of dengue and chikungunya infections are compared. By the fact that chikungunya virus attains high viral load earlier than dengue virus in both humans and mosquitoes, the potential risk of chikungunya could be higher than the dengue infection. The risk of arboviruses infections is assessed by… Expand

Follow up estimation of Aedes aegypti entomological parameters and mathematical modellings
This work compares two simple models supplied with model's parameters estimated from temperature-controlled experiments, especially the entomological parameters regarded to the mosquito's life cycle in different temperatures and shows that both mosquito population and dengue risk are situated at higher values than the simplified model.

Sensitivity analysis reveals that infection rates and mosquito mortality are the parameters for which R0 is more sensitive, and an ODE system that describes the transmission between humans and mosquitoes considering the aquatic stage of the vector population is proposed. Expand
Fitting the Incidence Data from the City of Campinas, Brazil, Based on Dengue Transmission Modellings Considering Time-Dependent Entomological Parameters
Four time-dependent dengue transmission models are considered in order to fit the incidence data from the City of Campinas, Brazil, recorded from October 1st 1995 to September 30th 2012, and overall effective reproduction numbers are obtained. Expand

The basic reproduction ratio for a model of directly transmitted infections considering the virus charge and the immunological response.
This paper analyzes a differential equations model of the transmission of microparasites taking into account heterogeneity with respect to the infectivity, that is, the variability in the evolution of the interaction between parasite and the human host during the infectious period. Expand
