COVID-19 continues to cause a significant impact on public health. To minimize this impact, policy makers undertake containment measures that however, when carried out disproportionately to the actual threat, as a result if errorneous threat assessment, cause undesirable long-term socio-economic complications. In addition, macro-level or national level decision making fails to consider the localized sensitivities in small regions. Hence, the need arises for region-wise threat assessments that… 



Forecasting for COVID-19 has failed

Model-based forecasting for Canadian COVID-19 data

Canadian COVID-19 data for the period of March 18, 2020 to August 16, 2020 is examined with the aim to forecast the dynamic trend in a short term and model-based insights into the pandemic evolvement in Canada are offered.

An epidemiological model to aid decision-making for COVID-19 control in Sri Lanka

A theoretical basis for estimating the limits within which transmission should be constrained in order to ensure that the case load remains within the available capacity of the health system after lockout is proposed.

Translating Scientific Knowledge to Government Decision Makers Has Crucial Importance in the Management of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

A multidisciplinary research team performed a large amount of scientific data analysis and mathematical and socioeconomic modeling of the COVID-19 epidemic in Hungary, including modeling the medical resources and capacities, the regional differences, gross domestic product loss, the impact of closing and reopening elementary schools, and the optimal nationwide screening strategy for various virus-spreading scenarios and R metrics.

Forecasting Models for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19): A Survey of the State-of-the-Art

This study categorizes forecasting techniques into two types, namely, stochastic theory mathematical models and data science/machine learning techniques and provides a set of recommendations for the people who are currently fighting the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Modelling the impact of testing, contact tracing and household quarantine on second waves of COVID-19

An agent-based model of SARS-CoV-2 transmission shows that testing, contact tracing and household quarantine could keep new COVID-19 waves under control while allowing the reopening of the economy with minimal social-distancing interventions.

Deep learning methods for forecasting COVID-19 time-Series data: A Comparative study

A Systematic Review on the Use of AI and ML for Fighting the COVID-19 Pandemic

This article synthesized reviewed recent literature that focuses on the usages and applications of AI and ML to fight against COVID-19, and identified seven future research directions that would guide researchers to conduct future research.

The impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on mental health of undergraduate students in New Jersey, cross-sectional study

The COVID-19 pandemic is making a significant negative impact on mental health of college students and proactive efforts to support the mental health and well-being of students are needed.

The effect of travel restrictions on the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak

The model shows that as of January 23, most Chinese cities had already received a considerable number of infected cases, and the travel quarantine delays the overall epidemic progression by only 3 to 5 days, which indicates that sustained 90% travel restrictions to and from Mainland China only modestly affect the epidemic trajectory.
