In this paper, with the assumptions that an infectious disease in a population has a fixed latent period and the latent individuals of the population may diffuse, we formulate an SIR model with a simple demographic structure for the population living in a spatially continuous environment. The model is given by a system of reaction-diffusion equations with a discrete delay accounting for the latency and a spatially non-local term caused by the mobility of the individuals during the latent period… CONTINUE READING
