Abstract

This paper aims to study the global stability of an Ebola virus epidemic model. Although this epidemic ended in September 2015, it devastated several West African countries and mobilized the international community. With the recent cases of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the threat of the reappearance of this fatal disease remains. Therefore, we are obligated to be prepared for a possible re-emerging of the disease. In this work, we investigate the global stability analysis via the theory of cooperative systems, and we determine the conditions that lead to global stability diseases free and endemic equilibrium.
