Abstract:

Consider a family of simple epidemics not necessarily with exponential interinfection times. For this family of simple epidemics normal approximations are established to all finite joint state probabilities. Illustrating the applicability of this result is a class of simple epidemics used frequently for modeling purposes for which the normal approximations hold.
