Tweaked Binomial Distribution to Capture the Impact of Drilling to Cure Bioterror Victims in Hospitals

Ramalingam Shanmugam


In an event of unfortunate bioterrorism, the victims are assigned quickly and randomly to nearby hospitals for cure. The chance for a victim to be successfully cured in a hospital which has drilled to face bioterrorism ought to be higher than such a chance in a hospital which did not drill. To capture the impact level of drilling, there is no model
or methodology in the statistics literature. With an estimate of the impact level of drilling, the government agency could easily convince and promote the importance of drilling among all the hospitals. These needs are fulfilled, in this article, by introducing a new model which is named tweaked binomial distribution (TBD). The properties of TBD are identified. Using a hypothetical data in five regions of the U. S. A. on anthrax cases, the concept and methodology of this article are illustrated.
