A comparison of delayed SIR and SEIR epidemic models. (English) Zbl 1322.92073
Summary: In epidemiological research literatures, a latent or incubation period can be modelled by incorporating it as a delay effect (delayed SIR models), or by introducing an exposed class (SEIR models). In this paper we propose a comparison of a delayed SIR model and its corresponding SEIR model in terms of local stability. Also some numerical simulations are given to illustrate the theoretical results.
