We present a compartmental meta-population model for the spread of Covid-19 in India. Our model simulates populations at a district or state level using an epidemiological model that is appropriate to Covid-19. Different districts are connected by a transportation matrix developed using available census data. We introduce uncertainties in the testing rates into the model that takes into account the disparate responses of the different states to the epidemic and also factors in the state of the… Expand

The INDSCI-SIM model for COVID-19 in India
TLDR
The INDSCI-SIM model, a 9-component, age-stratified, contact-structured compartmental model for COVID-19 spread in India, is used to obtain optimal fits to reported cases and deaths across the span of the first wave of the Indian pandemic, over the period Jan 30, 2020 to Feb 15, 2021. Expand
A Comprehensive Public Health Evaluation of Lockdown as a Non-pharmaceutical Intervention on COVID-19 Spread in India: National Trends Masking State Level Variations
TLDR
Pattern of change over lockdown periods indicate the lockdown has been effective in slowing the spread of the virus nationally and identifying large state-level variations can help in both understanding the dynamics of the pandemic and formulating effective public health interventions. Expand
Comprehensive public health evaluation of lockdown as a non-pharmaceutical intervention on COVID-19 spread in India: national trends masking state-level variations
TLDR
Pattern of change over lockdown periods indicate the lockdown has been partly effective in slowing the spread of the virus nationally, however, there exist large state-level variations and identifying these variations can help in both understanding the dynamics of the pandemic and formulating effective public health interventions.

Unequal Lives: A Sociodemographic Analysis of Covid19 Transmission and Mortality in India
TLDR
Persistent patterns are observed between disease outcome and social inequality, linking poor living conditions to a faster spread, an elderly populace to a slower spread, and both a college education and the presence of medical facilities to low fatality rates. Expand
An infectious diseases hazard map for India based on mobility and transportation networks
TLDR
It is shown that the effective distance, rather than the geographical distance, from the outbreak location has a linear relation with the time of arrival of infection at every city, and hence provides a better measure of risk. Expand

Healthcare impact of COVID-19 epidemic in India: A stochastic mathematical model
TLDR
India's healthcare resources will be overwhelmed by the end of May with the current growth rate of epidemic, but with the immediate institution of NPIs, total cases, hospitalizations, ICU requirements, and deaths can be reduced by almost 90%. Expand
Spread and dynamics of the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy: Effects of emergency containment measures
TLDR
Although a number of assumptions need to be reexamined, like age structure in social mixing patterns and in the distribution of mobility, hospitalization, and fatality, it is concluded that verifiable evidence exists to support the planning of emergency measures. Expand
Effectiveness of Testing, Tracing, Social Distancing and Hygiene in Tackling Covid-19 in India: A System Dynamics Model
TLDR
A System Dynamics model of the Covid-19 pandemic spread in India shows that, even after an extended lock-down, some non-trivial number of infections will be left and the pandemic will resurface. Expand
Modelling the impact of COVID-19 in Australia to inform transmission reducing measures and health system preparedness
TLDR
Reducing COVID-19 morbidity and mortality will rely on a combination of measures to strengthen and extend public health and clinical capacity, along with reduction of overall infection transmission in the community. Expand
Multi-city modeling of epidemics using spatial networks: Application to 2019-nCov (COVID-19) coronavirus in India
TLDR
A computationally efficient hybrid approach that uses SIR model for individual cities which are in turn coupled via empirical transportation networks that facilitate migration among them, which project that through the domestic transportation, the significant population is poised to be exposed within 90 days of the onset of epidemic.

Modelling the COVID-19 epidemic and implementation of population-wide interventions in Italy
TLDR
It is demonstrated that restrictive social-distancing measures will need to be combined with widespread testing and contact tracing to end the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Expand
Estimating the number of COVID-19 infections in Indian hot-spots using fatality data
TLDR
A method for estimating epidemiological parameters for COVID-19 in different locations within a few days is suggested, so adding to the information required for gauging the success of public health interventions. Expand

A Modified SIR Model for the COVID-19 Contagion in Italy
TLDR
A modified Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) model for the contagion is developed, and official data of the pandemic up to March 30th, 2020 is used for identifying the parameters of this model. Expand
Prudent public health intervention strategies to control the coronavirus disease 2019 transmission in India: A mathematical model-based approach.
TLDR
Port-of-entry-based entry screening of travellers with suggestive clinical features and from COVID-19-affected countries, would achieve modest delays in the introduction of the virus into the community, however, such measures would be insufficient to delay the outbreak by weeks or longer. Expand
