The dynamics of epidemics depend on how people's behavior changes during an outbreak. The impact of this effect due to control interventions on the morbidity rate is obvious and supported by numerous studies based on SIR-type models. However, the existing models do not explain the difference in outbreak profiles in countries with different intrinsic socio-cultural features and are rather specific for describing the complex dynamics of an outbreak. A system of models of the COVID-19 pandemic is… Expand

Inferring change points in the spread of COVID-19 reveals the effectiveness of interventions
Modeling and Bayesian inference reveal the time dependence of SARS-CoV-2 interventions on the number of new infections using the example of Germany and the impact of these measures on the disease spread using change point analysis. Expand
Dynamic and thermodynamic models of adaptation.
A world of models and experiments is explored, starting with classic works, with particular attention to the results of the last ten years and open questions. Expand
Mathematical modeling of COVID-19 in 14.8 million individuals in Bahia, Brazil
This work uses mathematical modelling to investigate transmission in the state of Bahia, Brazil, and quantify control measures needed to prevent the hospital system becoming overwhelmed, and quantifies the difficulties in maintaining a fully operational health infrastructure amidst the pandemic.

A simple dynamic process for adaptive “social distancing” measures to a standard SIR model of the COVID pandemic remains intrinsically fragile and does not constitute a sustainable strategy that societies could follow for an extended period of time. Expand
A SIR model assumption for the spread of COVID-19 in different communities
It is deduced that the spread of COVID-19 can be under control in all communities considered, if proper restrictions and strong policies are implemented to control the infection rates early from thespread of the disease. Expand
A Time-Dependent SIR Model for COVID-19 With Undetectable Infected Persons
A time-dependent SIR model that tracks the transmission and recovering rate at time of COVID-19 is proposed and it is shown that there are several countries on the verge of CO VID-19 outbreaks on Mar. 2, 2020. Expand
A new SAIR model on complex networks for analysing the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
A susceptible-asymptomatic-infected-removed (SAIR) model on social networks is proposed and a series of effective measures can facilitate the selection of appropriate approaches for controlling the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic to mitigate its adverse impact on people’s livelihood, societies and economies are provided. Expand
COVID-19: data-driven dynamics, statistical and distributed delay models, and observations
The critical role of data is elucidated, and it is discussed as to how the compartmental model can be used to capture responses to various measures including quarantining as well as for planning purposes. Expand
Effect of delay in diagnosis on transmission of COVID-19.
Investigation of the effect of delay in diagnosis on the disease transmission with a new formulated dynamic model reveals that, improving the proportion of timely diagnosis and shortening the waiting time for diagnosis can not eliminate COVID-19 but can effectively decrease the basic reproduction number. Expand
Effects of control measures on the dynamics of COVID-19 and double-peak behavior in Spain
The dynamic evolution of COVID-19 in Spain is studied, and a comprehensive SEIR model is adopted to fit the obtained clinical progressive data to create a time-variant transmission rate between the susceptible and the self-quarantine susceptible. Expand
