  journal={arXiv: Applications},
We present an interpretable high-resolution spatio-temporal model to estimate COVID-19 deaths together with confirmed cases one-week ahead of the current time, at the county-level and weekly aggregated, in the United States. A notable feature of our spatio-temporal model is that it considers the (a) temporal auto- and pairwise correlation of the two local time series (confirmed cases and death of the COVID-19), (b) dynamics between locations (propagation between counties), and (c) covariates… Expand

COUnty aggRegation mixup AuGmEntation (COURAGE) COVID-19 prediction
A method named COURAGE (COUnty aggRegation mixup AuGmEntation) is proposed to generate a short-term prediction of 2-week-ahead COVID-19 related deaths for each county in the United States, leveraging modern deep learning techniques. Expand
Early Detection of COVID-19 Hotspots Using Spatio-Temporal Data
A spatio-temporal Bayesian framework for early detection of COVID-19 hotspots (at the county level) in the United States is presented and demonstrates superior hotspot-detection performance compared to other baseline methods. Expand
Network Self-Exciting Point Processes To Measure Health Impacts of COVID-19
The assessment of the health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic requires the consideration of mobility networks. To this aim, we propose to augment spatio-temporal point process models with mobilityExpand

Some new dimensions that emerge at the intersection of sequential change detection with other areas are discussed, along with a selection of modern applications and remarks on open questions. Expand


Population flow drives spatio-temporal distribution of COVID-19 in China
Modelling of population flows in China enables the forecasting of the distribution of confirmed cases of COVID-19 and the identification of areas at high risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission at an early stage. Expand
Hawkes process modeling of COVID-19 with mobility leading indicators and spatial covariates
This work model the conditional intensity of new COVID-19 cases and deaths in the U.S. at the county level, estimating the dynamic reproduction number of the virus within an EM algorithm through a regression on Google mobility indices and demographic covariates in the maximization step. Expand
Estimating and Simulating a Sird Model of Covid-19 for Many Countries, States, and Cities
We use data on deaths in New York City, Madrid, Stockholm, and other world cities as well as in various U.S. states and various countries and regions to estimate a standard epidemiological model ofExpand
Spatial epidemic dynamics of the COVID-19 outbreak in China
Spatial association was the key to the spatial spread during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic in mainland China, and most of the models indicated a significant spatial association of CO VID-19 infections from around 22 January 2020. Expand
The role of the airline transportation network in the prediction and predictability of global epidemics
A stochastic computational framework for the forecast of global epidemics that considers the complete worldwide air travel infrastructure complemented with census population data and defines a set of quantitative measures able to characterize the level of heterogeneity and predictability of the epidemic pattern.

Multiscale mobility networks and the spatial spreading of infectious diseases
The present approach outlines the possibility for the definition of layered computational approaches where different modeling assumptions and granularities can be used consistently in a unifying multiscale framework. Expand
Real-Time Forecasting of the COVID-19 Outbreak in Chinese Provinces: Machine Learning Approach Using Novel Digital Data and Estimates From Mechanistic Models
A timely and novel methodology that combines disease estimates from mechanistic models and digital traces, via interpretable machine learning methodologies, to reliably forecast COVID-19 activity in Chinese provinces in real time is presented. Expand
Spatiotemporal biosurveillance with spatial clusters: control limit approximation and impact of spatial correlation
Experimental results show that the approximation method performs well, making the design of the multivariate CUSUM chart convenient; and higher spatial correlation does not always yield faster detection but often facilitates accurate identification of outbreak clusters. Expand
The Role of Environmental Factors on Transmission Rates of the COVID-19 Outbreak: An Initial Assessment in Two Spatial Scales.
Examination of the spatial variability of the basic reproductive numbers of COVID-19 across provinces and cities in China shows that environmental variables alone cannot explain this variability, and suggests changes in weather alone will not necessarily lead to declines in case count without the implementation of extensive public health interventions.

Understanding the spatial diffusion process of severe acute respiratory syndrome in Beijing
It is revealed that doctors were important in the spread of SARS in Beijing, and hospitals were not as important as doctors in the contagion period, but the population density was more significant than the population size, although they were both important throughout the whole period. Expand
