Europe is now considered as the epicenter of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, France being among the most impacted country. In France, there is an increasing concern regarding the capacity of the healthcare system to sustain the outbreak, especially regarding intensive care units (ICU). The aim of this study was to estimate the dynamics of the epidemic in France, and to assess its impact on healthcare resources for each French metropolitan Region. We developed a deterministic, age-structured… 
COVID-19: One-month impact of the French lockdown on the epidemic burden
TLDR
The analysis shows that in absence of any control measures, the COVID-19 epidemic would have had a critical morbidity and mortality burden in France, overwhelming in a matter of weeks French hospital capacities.
Predicting Hospital Demand During the COVID-19 Outbreak in Bogotá, Colombia
TLDR
A prediction of the total number of ICU and regular beds that will be needed in Bogotá, Colombia, during the COVID-19 pandemic is presented, using an SEIR model that includes three different categories of infection: those who can stay at home, Those who need regular hospital beds, and those who need ICU treatment.
Modelling strategies to predict hospital demand during the COVID-19 outbreak in Bogotá, Colombia
TLDR
The model predicts that by mid July 2020, the city will reach the peak of the epidemic with a total of 22 526 prevalent ICUs needed and 84 816 regular hospital beds needed and the death toll by the same date will reach 1752 people and the number of cases will be 54652 inhabitants.
COVID-19 length of hospital stay: a systematic review and data synthesis
TLDR
The combined summary LoS distributions provided here can be used to model bed demands for contingency planning and then updated, with the novel method presented here, as more studies with aggregated statistics emerge outside China.
COVID-19 length of hospital stay: a systematic review and data synthesis
TLDR
The combined summary LoS distributions provided here can be used to model bed demands for contingency planning and then updated, with the novel method presented here, as more studies with aggregated statistics emerge outside China.
The estimated impact of the COVID-19 epidemic in the general population of France
TLDR
This hypothesis does not dispute the caution required with regard to the extraordinary spread of the epidemic, with less affected geographic areas becoming a source of susceptible individuals, but calls into question the effectiveness of lockdown.
Simplified model of the number of Covid-19 patients in the ICU: update April 6, 2020
TLDR
A formula is deduced in order to model the number of the ICU patients in France from the official data and patient turnover and predicts a peak of between 7072 and 8043 patients for the overall French territory.
Forecasting the impact of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic on hospital demand and deaths for the USA and European Economic Area countries
TLDR
In addition to a large number of deaths from COVID-19, the epidemic will place a load on health system resources well beyond the current capacity of hospitals in the USA and EEA to manage, especially for ICU care and ventilator use.
Age-stratified model of the COVID-19 epidemic to analyze the impact of relaxing lockdown measures: nowcasting and forecasting for Switzerland
TLDR
This work proposes an age-stratified discrete compartment model as an alternative to differential equation based S-I-R type of models that captures the highly age-dependent progression of COVID-19 and is able to describe the day-by-day advancement of an infected individual in a modern health care system.

Critical Care Utilization for the COVID-19 Outbreak in Lombardy, Italy: Early Experience and Forecast During an Emergency Response.
TLDR
An emergency task force was formed by the Government of Lombardy and local health authorities to lead the response to the outbreak and a forecast of estimated ICU demand over the coming weeks is provided.
Estimation of the time-varying reproduction number of COVID-19 outbreak in China
A spatial model of CoVID-19 transmission in England and Wales: early spread and peak timing
TLDR
It is predicted that a CoVID-19 outbreak will peak 126 to 147 days after the start of person-to-person transmission in England and Wales in the absence of controls, assuming biological parameters remain unchanged, and the epidemic peak would occur in June.
Transmission characteristics of the COVID-19 outbreak in China: a study driven by data
TLDR
The COVID-19 outbreak has been a serious public health threat worldwide and the basic reproduction number is estimated to be 1.54 with contact tracing, quarantine and isolation, mostly driven by super spreaders.
Evaluating the use of the reproduction number as an epidemiological tool, using spatio-temporal trends of the Covid-19 outbreak in England
TLDR
The sensitivity of Rt estimates of Covid-19 in England to different data sources are explored, and the potential of using differences in the estimates to track epidemic dynamics in population sub-groups is investigated, finding the differences between Rt may be linked to biased representations of sub-populations in each data source.
Lessons learnt from 288 COVID-19 international cases: importations over time, effect of interventions, underdetection of imported cases
TLDR
A rapid exponential growth of importations from Hubei, combined with a slower growth from the other areas is found, and countries outside China should be prepared for the possible emergence of several undetected clusters of chains of local transmissions.
Clinical Characteristics of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in China
TLDR
During the first 2 months of the current outbreak, Covid-19 spread rapidly throughout China and caused varying degrees of illness, and patients often presented without fever, and many did not have abnormal radiologic findings.
First cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in France: surveillance, investigations and control measures, January 2020
TLDR
Effective collaboration between all parties involved in the surveillance and response to emerging threats is required to detect imported cases early and to implement adequate control measures.
