We stretch existing knowledge on model formulation and
develop an enhanced mathematical model to study the pattern of
spread of infectious diseases in Rivers State. The SIR model
formalism was used to compartmentalize the population and the
resulting model equations were solved numerically. The disease
free equilibrium and endemic equilibrium of the system were
established and analyzed for stability. A graph representation of
the sub groups is presented and discussed based on the results
from simulation.
