Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all countries of the world producing a substantial number of fatalities accompanied by a major disruption in their social, financial and educational organization. The strict disciplinary measures implemented by China were very effective and thus were subsequently adopted by most world countries to various degrees. The infection duration and number of infected persons are of critical importance for the battle against the pandemic. We use the… Expand
Beyond the peak: A deterministic compartment model for exploring the Covid-19 evolution in Italy
A deterministic compartment model is developed aimed at performing a retrospective analysis to understand the main modifications occurred to the characteristic parameters that regulate the epidemic spreading and finds that, besides self-protective behaviors, a reduction of susceptibility should have occurred in order to explain the fast descent of the epidemic after the peak.

A predictive model and country risk assessment for COVID-19: An application of the Limited Failure Population concept
Abstract This article provides predictions for the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus for a number of European countries and the United States of America, drawing from their different profiles, bothExpand
Modeling the Covid-19 Pandemic Response of the US States
The results reveal a series of epidemic waves, characterizing USA's pandemic response at the state level, and infer to what extent the imposition of early intervention measures could have had on the spread and impact of the disease. Expand
Epidemics Forecast From SIR-Modeling, Verification and Calculated Effects of Lockdown and Lifting of Interventions
Due to the current COVID-19 epidemic plague hitting the worldwide population it is of utmost medical, economical and societal interest to gain reliable predictions on the temporal evolution of theExpand
Mathematical models to predict COVID-19 outbreak : An interim review
A scoping review of recent studies involving mathematical and stochastic models, to tackle and analyse the epidemiological characteristics of the COVID-19 crisis at different geographical grounds is presented and a conclusion is drawn regarding the current state-of-the art methods and their challenges.

Scrutinizing the Spread of Covid-19 in Madagascar
The ratio R^(c,d)_{I/T} of the cumulative and daily numbers of infected persons over the corresponding one of tests is introduced which is expected to be less sensitive to the number of tests because the credibility of the results based only on the absolute numbers often raises some criticisms.

Number of International Arrivals Predicts Severity of the first Global Wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic
International travel was directly associated with the mortality slope and thus potentially the spread of COVID-19, an estimate of the country-level daily increase in reported deaths during the ascending phase of the epidemic curve. Expand

This work has analyzed the growth behavior of the top 25 most affected countries by means of a local slope analysis and found three distinct patterns that individual countries follow depending on the strictness of the lockdown protocols: rise and fall, power law, or logistic. Expand
Analyzing and Predicting Covid-19 epidemic using Machine Learning Techniques
This analysis of the covid-19 dataset available in Kaggle used linear regression, polynomial regression, and holt’s method to predict the future number of confirmed, recovered, and death cases to help reduce the contamination caused by this disease. Expand
Forecasting Brazilian and American COVID-19 cases based on artificial intelligence coupled with climatic exogenous variables
Bayesian regression neural network, cubist regression, k-nearest neighbors, quantile random forest, and support vector regression are used stand-alone, and coupled with the recent pre-processing variational mode decomposition (VMD) employed to decompose the time series into several intrinsic mode functions, and hybridization of VMD outperformed single forecasting models regarding the accuracy.

In the midst of the perfect storm: Swift public health actions needed in order to increase societal safety during the COVID-19 pandemic
Grounded on the adopted approaches, interventions in sero-prevalence studies, mobilisation of the primary health care sector, as well as target socially vulnerable groups should be taken into consideration by heath authorities. Expand
