In this paper some innovative aspects of the mathematical modelling of classic epidemiology problems for the study of models related to the COVID-19 pandemic dynamics are presented. In addition, they are compared to real-world data using numerical methods in order to approximate the solutions. One of these models includes a non-transmitting compartment and another one, a delay-differential equation in the SIR-type method. Finally, a comparative discussion of the results is also presented.
