Epidemiological Compartments separating different stages of infection and parasite density in a population. S, E, I and R represent Susceptible, Exposed, Infected and Recovered fraction of the population respectively. Arrows on the top indicate different ways of population loss and transfer of population from one compartment to another. Different periods (Latent, Incubation, Symptomatic) characteristic of infection are shown by dotted arrows. The bottom panel shows the status of clinical markers for each compartment - PCR (P), Sero-conversion (Sc) and Cellular immunity (C) (positive or negative). Colour Bar indicates the density of parasites in host in different compartments (0-100%). See text and Table 2 for details.
