In this paper, we propose a new susceptible-vaccinated-exposed-infected-recovered with unaware-aware (SEIR/V-UA) model to study the mutual effect between the epidemic spreading and the information diffusion . We investigate the dynamical processes of the model with Kinetic equation, and derive the expression for epidemic stability by the eigenvalues of Jacobian matrix . Then, we validate the model by Monte Carlo method and numerical simulation on a two-layer scale-free network . With the outbreak of COVID-19, the spread of epidemic in China prompted drastic measures for transmission containment . We examine the effects of these interventions based on modeling of the information-epidemic and the data of the COVID-19 epidemic case . The results further demonstrate that the epidemic spreading can be affected by the effective transmission rate of the awareness . This article is protected by copyright . All rights reserved.
