Abstract:

In this paper we discuss an SI epidemic model with pulse removal from the infective class at fixed time intervals with both exponential and logistic type underlying population dynamics. This model has a significance when dealing with animal diseases with no recovery or when we consider isolation in human diseases. We provide a rigorous analysis of the asymptotic behavior of the percentage of infected individuals, the total number of infected individuals, and the total population in our model. We show that periodic removalisolation is a feasible strategy to control the spread of the disease.
