Abstract

Hantaviruses are etiological agents of zoonotic diseases and certain other diseases, which pose a serious threat to human health. When rodent and predator populations share in an ecology, the competitive force of the populations can lead to a reduction or elimination of a hantavirus outbreak. The effect of the predator eliminating rodents and predator populations that tends to reduce or eliminate hantavirus infection is investigated. The existence of several equilibrium points of the model is identified and local and global stabilities of the model at these equilibrium points are analysed in detail. Numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate our model results.
