Regeneration” of the population Susceptibles are drafted into the population, by either birth or immigration, at the rate a such that in the infinitesimal time interval dt an “amount”2 a × dt (= adt) susceptibles are added to the population. 3 “Law of infection” Soper then discusses several models of transmissibility over time to settle on one according to which all infective power is concentrated at the end of a constant interval. 2 Note that this treatment of the epidemic process does not treat a population as made up of certain numbers of susceptible, infectious, etc.

If both sides of Eq. 5) are integrated with respect to time from t0 to t1 and the time t0 = 0 when the number of susceptibles is at the equilibrium level m, the following expression for the number of susceptibles as a function of time is obtained: t1 0 dx(t) dt dx(t) dt dt t1 = a − z(t), t1 = a − z(t)dt (integrate both sides), 0 t1 dx(t) = 0 (a − z(t)) dt 0 (dt cancels from left-hand side; separating a and z), x(t) t1 0 t1 = (a − z(t)) dt ( dx(t) = x(t) + C; 0 the C falls away calculating definite integral), x(t) − m t1 = (a − z(t)) dt (left-hand side: x(0) = m), 0 x(t) = t1 m+ (a − z(t)) dt (add m to both sides).

2 Discussion of Table 1 and Figures En’ko then discusses Table 1, exploring how the initial number of susceptibles, J , and the transmission parameter A affect the course of the epidemic. He writes: “[I]f by chance or as a consequence of the applied measures the disease disappears for some years, then the number of susceptibles reaches up to one-half of the total population or more; at a new entry of a patient a big epidemic will occur (Nos. ” (p. ” Examination of the scenarios No. 1 trough 39 reveals a few interesting epidemic properties: The following three parameters are varied: A The number of infectious contacts per individual A/N (generally increases from left to right).
