Table 1 Definition of parameters for the modified epidemic model

From: Mathematical models for devising the optimal Ebola virus disease eradication

Parameters Definition
á The isolation rate, i.e. the rate of people moved from the infective group to the hospital isolated group
\(\hat{a}\) The infection rate, i.e. the rate of the susceptible population get infected
\(\tilde{a}_{E}\) The outflow rate of early stage infected group, i.e. the rate that early infected people turn advanced infected
\(\tilde{a}_{L}\) The outflow rate of advanced infected group, i.e. the rate that advanced infected people die of the disease
ό The outflow rate of the incubation group to the early stage infective group
ù The outflow rate of the isolation group, that is the rate of isolated patients get cured.
N The total population
Nc(t) Number of other household in other countries of one un-hospitalized infected people at time t;
c Comprehensive treatment and immunization rate
\(\Delta\) The ratio of the case input (<0) or the output (>0)
