Emerging infectious diseases are existential threats to human health and global stability. The recent outbreaks of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 have rapidly formed a global pandemic, causing hundreds of thousands of infections and huge economic loss. The WHO declares that more precise measures to track, detect and isolate infected people are among the most effective means to quickly contain the outbreak. Based on trajectory provided by the big data and the mean field theory, we establish an…

Big data epidemic prevention and control framework design based on 5G base station data fusion

The object-oriented method is adopted in the organization of metadata to analyze the comprehensive data framework more efficiently and the control framework design based on 5G base station data fusion is studied.

A framework for monitoring movements of pandemic disease patients based on GPS trajectory datasets

A framework for monitoring Movements of Pandemic Disease Patients and predicting their next geographical locations given the recent trend of infected COVID-19 patients absconding from isolation centres is provided and it is shown that it is possible to determine the Stay Points (hot spots) of a CO VID-19 patient.

Contextual contact tracing based on stochastic compartment modeling and spatial risk assessment

A contact tracing-based stochastic compartment model as a baseline is implemented, to further modify the existing setup to include the spatial risk, and it is highlighted that the inclusion of spatial context tends to send more individuals into quarantine which reduces the overall spread of infection.
