# Global dynamics of tick-borne diseases

• Received: 11 March 2020 Accepted: 29 May 2019 Published: 05 June 2020
• A tick-borne disease model is considered with nonlinear incidence rate and piecewise constant delay of generalized type. It is known that the tick-borne diseases have their peak during certain periods due to the life cycle of ticks. Only adult ticks can bite and transmit disease. Thus, we use a piecewise constant delay to model this phenomena. The global asymptotic stability of the disease-free and endemic equilibrium is shown by constructing suitable Lyapunov functions and Lyapunov-LaSalle technique. The theoretical findings are illustrated through numerical simulations.
