Understanding Models to Predict Viral Spread and Community Impact

May 13, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

In this presentation we will discuss how models predict viral spread including the spread of COVID-19 as well as the impact it has on the community. We will review three modeling strategies used to model viral spread and how assumptions in models impact decisions made from various model outputs. We will also explore how models are used in public health policy to control infectious disease spread.
