Effects of measures on phase transitions in two cooperative Susceptible-Infectious-Recovered (SIR) dynamics

  title={Effects of measures on phase transitions in two cooperative Susceptible-Infectious-Recovered (SIR) dynamics},
  author={A. M. Khazaee and Fakhteh Ghanbarnejad},
In recent studies, it has been shown that a cooperative interaction in a co-infection spread can lead to a discontinuous transition at a decreased threshold. Here, we investigate effects of immunization with a rate proportional to the extent of the infection on phase transitions of a cooperative coinfection. We use mean-field approximation to illustrate how measures that remove a portion of the susceptible compartment, like vaccination, with high enough rates can change discontinuous… 


First-order phase transitions in outbreaks of co-infectious diseases and the extended general epidemic process
In co-infections, positive feedback between multiple diseases can accelerate outbreaks. In a recent letter Chen, Ghanbarnejad, Cai, and Grassberger (CGCG) introduced a spatially homogeneous
Outbreaks of coinfections: the critical role of cooperativity
This letter introduces a model of SIR (susceptible-infected-removed) type which explicitly incorporates the effect of cooperative coinfection, and argues that the results are obtained in a mean-field model using rate equations and should hold also in more general frameworks.
Dynamics of interacting diseases
This work characterize analytically the epidemic thresholds of the two diseases for different scenarios and also compute the temporal evolution characterizing the unfolding dynamics and finds that the secondary thresholds for the SIS and SIR models are different, which results directly from the interaction between both diseases.
Exact solution of generalized cooperative susceptible-infected-removed (SIR) dynamics.
A general framework for coinfection as cooperative susceptible-infected-removed (SIR) dynamics is introduced and it is shown analytically that there is a saddle-node-like bifurcation for two cooperative SIR dynamics and that the transition is hybrid.
Fundamental properties of cooperative contagion processes
We investigate the effects of cooperativity between contagion processes that spread and persist in a host population. We propose and analyze a dynamical model in which individuals that are affected

A model of two competing diseases spreading over the same network at the same time, where infection with either disease gives an individual subsequent immunity to both, is examined.
The Role of Coinfection in Multidisease Dynamics
It is shown that in addition to the disease-free equilibrium, there exists a unique dominance equilibrium corresponding to each disease, and for some parameter values, there exist two coexistence equilibria.
Phase transitions in cooperative coinfections: Simulation results for networks and lattices.
We study the spreading of two mutually cooperative diseases on different network topologies, and with two microscopic realizations, both of which are stochastic versions of a

This work investigates the pattern formation of an interacting contagion, where two infections, A and B, interact with each other and diffuse simultaneously in space and suggests that these patterns are essentially Turing patterns.
Markovian approach to tackle the interaction of simultaneous diseases.
A general and versatile benchmark to address the unfolding of both cooperative and competitive interacting diseases is proposed and the explosive transitions between the disease-free and the epidemic regimes arising from the cooperation between pathogens are characterized.
