Modelling the COVID-19 Pandemic: CMMID COVID-19 symposium
Since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID) at LSHTM have been using mathematical modelling to predict the spread of the novel coronavirus as well as estimate the impact of different control measures.
In this symposium, eight speakers will present on a diverse range of research questions addressed in the last 12 months, from evaluating the impact of school closures, and air travel restrictions, to monitoring changes in mobility and social contact patterns.
