In this paper, I study epidemic diffusion in a generalized spatial SEIRD model, where individuals are initially connected in a social or geographical network. As the virus spreads in the network, the structure of interactions between people may endogenously change over time, due to quarantining measures and/or spatial-distancing policies. I explore via simulations the dynamic properties of the co-evolutionary process dynamically linking disease diffusion and network properties. Results suggest…

Heterogeneity matters: Contact structure and individual variation shape epidemic dynamics

TLDR
This work translates a COVID-19 ODE model to a stochastic multi-agent system and uses contact networks to model complex interaction structures and a probabilistic infection rate to model individual viral load variation.

Why ODE models for COVID-19 fail: Heterogeneity shapes epidemic dynamics

TLDR
This work translates a COVID-19 ODE model to a stochastic multi-agent system and uses contact networks to model complex interaction structures and a probabilistic infection rate to model individual viral load variation.

The effect of the pandemic on complex socio-economic systems: community detection induced by communicability (preprint)/ en

TLDR
This paper proposes a new methodological approach based on the Estrada communicability for identifying communities on a multiplex network, based on a two-step optimization, and shows that the community detection on thismultiplex network has greater information power than classical methods for single-layer networks.

The world trade network: country centrality and the COVID-19 pandemic

TLDR
The results show that the number of infections and fatalities are larger in countries with a higher centrality in the global trade network, and the effect of different measures of centrality is compared.

A Comparative Study on Distancing, Mask and Vaccine Adoption Rates from Global Twitter Trends

TLDR
This study reveals the uniform polarity in public sentiment on the basis of spatial proximity or COVID-19 infection rates and shows the reservation about the adoption of social distancing and vaccination across the world and also quantifies the influence of airport traffic, homelessness, followed by old age and race on sentiment of netizens within the US.

Disease spreading with social distancing: A prevention strategy in disordered multiplex networks.

TLDR
A susceptible-infected-recovered model of disease spreading in a multiplex network formed by two distinct networks or layers, interconnected through a fraction q of shared individuals (overlap), which finds that the critical values of the distancing intensities, above which an epidemic can be prevented, increase with the overlap q.

Modelling Strong Control Measures for Epidemic Propagation With Networks—A COVID-19 Case Study

TLDR
It is shown that precise knowledge of epidemic transmission parameters is not required to build an informative model of the spread of disease and the robustness of the model predictions under uncertainty of those estimates is demonstrated.

Networks and epidemic models

TLDR
A variety of methods are described that allow the mixing network, or an approximation to the network, to be ascertained and how the two fields of network theory and epidemiological modelling can deliver an improved understanding of disease dynamics and better public health through effective disease control are suggested.

Epidemic processes in complex networks

TLDR
A coherent and comprehensive review of the vast research activity concerning epidemic processes is presented, detailing the successful theoretical approaches as well as making their limits and assumptions clear.

Epidemic analysis of COVID-19 in China by dynamical modeling

TLDR
A mathematical model is proposed to analyzes this epidemic, based on a dynamic mechanism that incorporating the intrinsic impact of hidden la- tent and infectious cases on the entire process of transmission, which indicates that, the outbreak in Wuhan is predicted to be ended in the early April.

Modelling epidemics on networks

TLDR
This paper reviews the mathematical modelling of infectious disease epidemics on networks, starting from the simplest Erdös–Rényi random graphs, and building up structure in the form of correlations, heterogeneity and preference, paying particular attention to the links between random graph theory, percolation and dynamical systems representing transmission.

Epidemic models for complex networks with demographics.

TLDR
It is found that demographics has great effect on basic reproduction number R0, and the degree distribution of population varies with time before it reaches the stationary state, and it is proved that if R0 ≤ 1, infection-free equilibrium of SIS model is globally asymptotically stable.

Social network-based distancing strategies to flatten the COVID-19 curve in a post-lockdown world

TLDR
Fusing models from epidemiology and network science, Block et al. show how to ease lockdown and slow infection spread by strategic modification of contact through seeking similarity, strengthening communities and repeating interaction in bubbles.
