Global analysis of a delayed vector-bias model for malaria transmission with incubation period in mosquitoes

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • A delayed vector-bias model for malaria transmission with incubation period in mosquitoes is studied. The delay $\tau$ corresponds to the time necessary for a latently infected vector to become an infectious vector. We prove that the global stability is completely determined by the threshold parameter, $R_0(\tau)$. If $R_0(\tau)\leq1$, the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable. If $R_0(\tau)>1$ a unique endemic equilibrium exists and is globally asymptotically stable. We apply our results to Ross-MacDonald malaria models with an incubation period (extrinsic or intrinsic).
