Theoretical Analysis on the Growth Kinetics of SARS-CoV (within host)

Pavithra Sivasamy, Vanthana Ramesh Kumar


A mathematical model is investigated to analyze the biological interactions
between the immune system and SARS-CoV (within host).
Homotopy Perturbation Method is executed to obtain an analytical
solution to the non-linear system of ordinary differential equations.
Graphical illustration to these solutions is also presented. The reliability
and the simplicity of the aforementioned method is studied
through the comparison between the numerical and graphical results.
This comparison aids the better understanding of the disease dynamics
and also the establishment of probable strategies for the treatment
of COVID-19.
