An epidemic model is analyzed which allows for the spatial spread of individuals within a geographical region and the incubation of the disease within infected individuals. The spatial spread of the disease is modelled by diffusion processes. The incubation period of infectives is modelled by infection-age structure. Results are established which provide qualitative prediction of the development of the epidemic in terms of spatially dependent and age dependent parameters.
