A Review on How to Survive During an Epidemic, Natural Calamity and All-Hazards

EasyChair Preprint no. 3059

5 pagesDate: March 27, 2020


To survive, protect and secure oneself in disasters like the epidemic which is akin to a situation where one has to trade-off to protect both from asymptomatic infected persons who are difficult carriers to assess and who have attributed to a significant number of Covid-19 cases as well as natural hazardous situations. This is clear because the healthy person (defender) must make decisions about both, for resources which are scarce like that of emergency health services. In this study, we have considered a game when the agents, i.e. the healthy person (defender) and the asymptomatic infected person/infection, move simultaneously. There may be some other realistic situations that may occur, such as when the defender makes a move first; and when the asymptomatically infected/disease progresses first. Finally, we arrive at conditions, where we observe that when all-hazards protection is not amounting to a higher cost, it can combinedly protect both the natural disaster and infection. We also see that, as the cost increases, either or both protection against pure natural disaster protection or protection against specific asymptomatic infection joins in, based on the effectiveness of cost.
