Focusing on the dynamics of the most recent outbreak of COVID-19, we formulate an age distributed model with five different components in terms of nonlinear partial differential equations. The model has been analyzed by studying the stability of the equilibrium points and their reproduction number. To explore the disease effect on different ages more efficiently, we apply the recent estimated data in the formulated model and analyze it numerically. From the model’s numerical solution profiles, we observed more susceptibility and infection among the older population. Also studied the effectiveness of isolation in controlling illness and death.
