### 3 SIR infection model

The SIR model is

\begin{align} \dot{S} & =-\beta SI\tag{1}\\ \dot{I} & =\beta SI-\upsilon I\tag{2}\\ \dot{R} & =\upsilon I \tag{3} \end{align}

Where \(S\) represent the susceptible population and \(I\) the infected population and \(R\) the recovered
population, and \(\beta \) is the transmission rate from \(S\) to \(I\) and \(\upsilon \) is the recovery rate from \(I\) to
\(R\).

This animation shows what happens as the transmission rate increases (while the recovery rate is
kept ﬁxed). This uses initial conditions of \(S(0)=1000\) and \(I(0)=1\). Which means one person is infected only
initially.

The recovery rate is kept at \(0.05\) while the transmission rate is changed from \(0.0003\) to \(0.03\).

This animation shows what happens as the transmission rate is kept ﬁxed at \(0.005\), while the recovery
rate is increased from \(0.001\) to \(0.3\)
