The cycle of life includes everything from joy to sorrow to good health to sickness. Most people have had a viral infection at some point in their lives, whether it was a small infections or the flu. It is amazing that a microscopic particle that cannot even be seen under a microscope and cannot even replicate on its own can enter any living creature and use the resources of that life form to create thousands of copies of the virus, some of which can even be fatal to the living species. Understanding the origin, means of prevention, means of control, and attempts at preventative measures are essential in the fight against these illnesses. It is immoral to experiment on infectious diseases, unlike other types of research. On the other hand, mathematical models can reasonably explain how the disease is spreading. This article focuses on few compartmental models and a technique to analyze the infectious disease. The control analysis technique which employ to comprehend how diseases move among the populations and where the controls are required. In this article Routh-Hurwitz criterion is employed to analyze the system of equations.
