Figure 5

Irregular growth simulation with the Verhulst logistic equation, given by Eq. (12), with arbitrary parameters. (a) A sudden increase in risk results in a second wave in pandemics and a growth spurt in cancer. (b) A reduction of risk for growth can result in flattening the curve in pandemics or the tumor shrink by e.g., radiotherapy for cancer.
