Abstract

• We proposed an epidemic model incorporating awareness programs and different hospitalization schemes to study the transmission dynamics of COVID-19. • We analyzed the model and estimate key epidemiological parameters that are useful in controlling the epidemic in Nigeria. • We assess the effect of awareness programs and explore its impact with respect to the basic reproduction number. • We fit the model to the COVID-19 cases data in Nigeria from March 29 to June 12, 2020, to show the trends of the epidemic.
