A predator-prey system with nonlinear incidence rate and refuging in prey is proposed to describe behavior change of certain infected diseases on healthy prey when the number of infected prey is getting large, while predator can predate prey by accessing refuging in prey. Therefore, this paper discusses the dynamics behavior predator-prey model with the spread of infected disease that is denoted by nonlinear incidence rate and adding prey refuge. We find the existence of eight non-negative equilibrium in the model, which their local stability has been determined. Furthermore, we also observe the prey refuge properties in the model. We find that prey refuge can prevent extinction in prey populations. In the end, some numerical solutions are carried out to illustrate our analytic results. For future work, we can investigate the harvesting effect in both populations, which is disease control in the predator-prey model with the spread of infected disease.
