Targeted Interventions Reduce the Spread of COVID-19: Simulation Study on Real Mobility Data

  title={Targeted Interventions Reduce the Spread of COVID-19: Simulation Study on Real Mobility Data},
  author={Haotian Wang and Abhirup Ghosh and J. Ding and Rik Sarkar and Jie Gao},
Various intervention methods have been introduced worldwide to slow down the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, by limiting human mobility in different ways. While large scale lockdown strategies are effective in reducing the spread rate, they come at a cost of significantly limited societal functions. We show that natural human mobility has high diversity and heterogeneity such that a small group of individuals and gathering venues play an important role in the spread of the disease. We discover…

The effect of large-scale anti-contagion policies on the COVID-19 pandemic

It is estimated that across these six countries, interventions prevented or delayed on the order of 62 million confirmed cases, corresponding to averting roughly 530 million total infections, and anti-contagion policies have significantly and substantially slowed this growth.

Interdependence and the Cost of Uncoordinated Responses to COVID-19

A simple analytical model calibrated with empirical estimates demonstrated that the “loss from anarchy” in uncoordinated state policies is increasing in the number of non cooperating states and the size of social and geographic spillovers.

New partial similarity measures, categorized as time-sensitive, order-sensitive and order-insensitive ones, are proposed and shown with real data that they are more robust than classical measures and more suitable for generating meaningful query results in near-neighbor type of data mining applications.

Mapping county-level mobility pattern changes in the United States in response to COVID-19

An interactive web-based mapping platform that provides timely quantitative information on how people in different counties and states reacted to the social distancing guidelines was developed by the GeoDS Lab @UW-Madison with the support of the National Science Foundation RAPID program.
