A person with a contagious disease enters the population Every
A person with a contagious disease enters the population. Every day he either infects a new person (which occurs with probability p) or his symptoms appear and he is discovered by health officials (which occurs with probability 1 –p). Assuming all infected persons behave in the same manner, compute the probability distribution of the number of infected but undiscovered people in the population at the time of first discovery of the disease.
