A mathematical study of the COVID-19 propagation through a stochastic epidemic model

The COVID-19 is a major danger that threatens the whole world.  In this context, mathematical modeling is a very powerful tool for knowing more about how such a disease is transmitted within a host population of humans.  In this regard, we propose in the current study a stochastic epidemic model that describes the COVID-19 dynamics under the application of quarantine and coverage media strategies, and we give a rigorous mathematical analysis of this model to obtain an overview of COVID-19 dissemination behavior.
