Equal Distribution Model of Epidemic Drugs Based on a Cellular Automata Model
North China Electric Power University, 071003 Baoding Hebei, China
The epidemic spreading of infectious disease is a process of evolution over time. Based on the cellular automata model, this paper analyzes the epidemic spreading rules, and establishes an efficient equal distribution model of drugs in a broad sense. For multiple regions, in case of demand of drugs exceeding supply, the drugs shall be distributed according to the proportion of a total number of people in each region, the number of patients, the number of the isolated, and the number of deaths. It is necessary to simulate based on these four schemes to obtain simulation results. The results show that, when the drugs are distributed by the proportion of the number of deaths, it is optimal for controlling over epidemic situations.
Key words: Ebola virus / cellular automaton model / equal distribution model / multiple regions
