Abstract


Corona-virus disease (COVID-19) is caused by the novel-virus (SARS-COV2). This disease mainly targets human respiratory system. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has affected day to day life and is slowing down the global economy. This pandemic has affected thousands of peoples, who are either sick or are being killed due to the spread of this disease. In this paper we developed an eight compartmental model with quarantine and treatment of COVID-19. After proposing the model, we analysed the qualitative behaviors of the model, like the disease free and endemic equilibrium points and their stability analysis. Moreover, we obtained the basic reproduction number using next-generation matrix method and we performed the sensitivity analysis to identify the most affecting parameters in terms of disease control and spread. To investigate the detail effect of each major parameters, we performed numerical simulation. We obtained that using both quarantine and treatment is best way in combating COVID-19 in the community. Therefore, stakeholders and policy makers of a government should use both quarantine and treatment simultaneously in fighting the pandemic from the population.
