  author={Zheng Dong and Shixiang Zhu and Yao Xie and Jorge Mateu and Francisco J. Rodr'iguez-Cort'es},
Most COVID-19 studies commonly report figures of the overall infection at a stateor county-level, reporting the aggregated number of cases in a particular region at one time. This aggregation tends to miss out on fine details of the propagation patterns of the virus. This paper is motivated by analyzing a high-resolution COVID-19 dataset in Cali, Colombia, that provides every confirmed case’s exact location and time information, offering vital insights for the spatio-temporal interaction… Expand


Non-stationary Spatio-Temporal Modeling of COVID-19 Progression in The U.S.
A piecewise susceptible-infected-recovered (SIR) model is developed while the dates at which the transmission/recover rates change significantly are defined as "break points" in this model, which performs satisfactorily short-term forecasts of the number of new daily cases at regional levels by utilizing the estimated spatio-temporal covariance structures.

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
Understanding the Spread of COVID-19 Epidemic: A Spatio-Temporal Point Process View
This paper model the propagation of the COVID-19 as spatio-temporal point processes and proposes a generative and intensity-free model to track the spread of the disease and showcases the dynamic learning performance on the CO VID-19 confirmed cases in the U.S. Expand
New statistical RI index allow to better track the dynamics of COVID-19 outbreak in Italy
A new index RI = dH/dI (daily derivative ratio of H and I), corresponding to the ratio between healed and infected patients relative daily changes is proposed, which allows to follow (and possibly forecast) epidemic dynamics in a largely model-independent way. Expand
Point process models for COVID-19 cases and deaths
This work adopts techniques for conditional functional point processes that target point processes as responses with vector covariates as predictors, to study the interaction and optimal transport between case and death processes and doubling times conditional on covariates. Expand
Spatiotemporal Infectious Disease Modeling: A BME-SIR Approach
This paper focuses on stochastic modeling that accounts for basic mechanisms of disease distribution and multi-sourced in situ uncertainties and studies the functional formulation of the evolution of the fractions of susceptible-infected-recovered individuals. Expand
Spatio-Temporal Point Processes with Attention for Traffic Congestion Event Modeling
This work presents a novel framework for modeling traffic congestion events over road networks based on new mutually exciting spatio-temporal point process models with attention mechanisms and neural network embeddings, and introduces a novel attention-based mechanism based on neural networks embedding for the point process model.

Monitoring Italian COVID-19 spread by a forced SEIRD model
This paper proposes a forced Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Recovered-Dead (fSEIRD) differential model for the analysis and forecast of the COVID-19 spread in Italian regions, using the data from the Italian Protezione Civile from 24/02/2020. Expand
The effect of human mobility and control measures on the COVID-19 epidemic in China
Real-time mobility data from Wuhan and detailed case data including travel history are used to elucidate the role of case importation in transmission in cities across China and to ascertain the impact of control measures. Expand
