Estimates of the severity of coronavirus disease 2019: a model-based analysis

Spatiotemporal pattern of COVID-19 spread in Brazil

Indicators of clustering, trajectories, speed, and intensity of the movement of COVID-19 to interior areas, combined with indices of policy measures, show that although no single narrative explains the diversity in the spread, an overall failure of implementing prompt, coordinated, and equitable responses in a context of stark local inequalities fueled disease spread.

Modeling Infectious Diseases in Humans and Animals

Mathematical modeling of infectious dis-eases has progressed dramatically over the past 3 decades and continues to be a valuable tool at the nexus of mathematics, epidemiol-ogy, and infectious diseases research.

Estimating SARS-CoV-2 infections from deaths, confirmed cases, tests, and random surveys

The extent to which reported COVID cases have underestimated true infection counts, which was large, especially in the first months of the pandemic, is estimated.

Modeling the Spatiotemporal Epidemic Spreading of COVID-19 and the Impact of Mobility and Social Distancing Interventions

An age-stratified mobility-based metapopulation model is developed that encapsulates the main particularities of the spreading of COVID-19 regarding its transmission among individuals, the specificities of certain demographic groups with respect to the impact of CO VID-19, and the human mobility patterns inside and among regions.

Outbreak diversity in epidemic waves propagating through distinct geographical scales

A stochastic epidemic model with the metapopulation approach in which patches represent municipalities is investigated, suggesting that the policies of combating the epidemics must be engineered according to the region' specificity but integrated with the overall situation.

Delta variant triggers new phase in the pandemic

A SARS-CoV-2 variant called Delta is slowly taking over the pandemic, and the surge has set off a frenzy of research to understand why the variant appears to spread so much faster than the three other variants of concern.

Estimating the cumulative incidence of COVID-19 in the United States using influenza surveillance, virologic testing, and mortality data: Four complementary approaches

Four complementary approaches are introduced to estimate the cumulative incidence of symptomatic COVID-19 in each state in the US as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, using a combination of excess influenza-like illness reports, CO VID-19 test statistics, COvid-19 mortality reports, and a spatially structured epidemic model, with the consistent conclusion that on April 4, 2020, the estimated case count was 5 to 50 times higher than the official positive test counts.

Novel coronavirus 2019-nCoV (COVID-19): early estimation of epidemiological parameters and epidemic size estimates

The true size of the epidemic may be significantly greater than the published case counts suggest, with the model estimating 21 022 (prediction interval, 11 090–33 490) total infections in Wuhan between 1 and 22 January.
