Epidemic Propagation With Polarized Opinions Over Signed Network

Abstract

This technical note deals with a coupled epidemic-opinion dynamical model over a multiplex network, where the interplay between polarized opinions over social interaction network regarding protective measures and disease spreading captured by susceptible-exposed-infected-vigilant (SEIV) epidemic model over transmission network is investigated. For this coupled model, sufficient condition of the disease free state is obtained for the network epidemic model, while the perceived disease severity drops to zero at this state through opinion sharing. The simulation results corroborate the findings.

Keywords Epidemic dynamical model, multiplex network, opinion dynamics, SEIV model, signed network.
