A Class of Nonautonomous Schistosomiasis Transmission Model with Incubation Period
Abstract: A nonautonomous schistosomiasis model with latent period and saturated incidence is investigated. Further, we study the long-time behavior of the epidemic model. The weaker sufficient conditions for the permanence and extinction of infectious population of the model are obtained by constructing some auxiliary functions. Numerical simulations show agreement with the theoretical results.
