\(m_{p}\) The death rate of people
\(\frac{1}{\omega _{p}}\) The incubation period of people
\(\frac{1}{\omega '_{p}}\) The latent period of people
\(\frac{1}{\gamma _{p}}\) The infectious period of symptomatic infection in people
\(\frac{1}{\gamma '_{p}}\) The infectious period of asymptomatic infection in people
\(\mu _{p}\) The shedding coefficients from \(I_{P}\) to W
\(\mu '_{p}\) The shedding coefficients from \(A_{p}\) to W
\(\delta _{p}\) The proportion of asymptomatic infection rate of people
\(\beta _{p}\) The transmission rate from \(I_{p}\) to \(S_{p}\)
\(\beta _{W}\) The transmission rate from W to \(S_{p}\)
k The multiple of the transmissibility of \(A_{p}\) to that of \(I_{p}\)
\(\frac{1}{\varepsilon } \) The lifetime of the virus in W
c The relative shedding rate of \(A_{p}\) compared to \(I_{p}\)
