A Mathematical Model of Chikungunya Dynamics and Control: The Major Epidemic on Réunion Island

Yakob, Laith; Clements, Archie C. A.


Chikungunya is a re-emerging arboviral disease transmitted by Aedes spp. mosquitoes. Although principally endemic to Africa and Asia, recent outbreaks have occurred in Europe following introductions by returning travellers. A particularly large outbreak occurred on Réunion Island in 2006, the published data from which forms the basis of the current study. A simple, deterministic mathematical model of the transmission of the virus between humans and mosquitoes was constructed and parameterised...[Show more]
