Resumo
© 2021 Elsevier B.V.An epidemiological model based on probabilistic cellular automaton is proposed to investigate the dynamics of two co-circulating infections. In the model, one of these two diseases compromises the immune response to future infections; however, there is vaccine against this immunosuppressive disease. The goal is to evaluate the impact of the vaccination coverage on the prevalence and on the cumulative deaths associated with both contagious diseases. The performed numerical simulations highlight the importance of vaccination on decreasing morbidity and mortality. The results are discussed from a public health standpoint, by taking into account outbreaks of measles and COVID-19.
