20-39 year olds are ‘peak spreaders’. If we vaccinate them, it reduces the risk for all of us.
COVIDSafe was only able to detect a handful of cases successfully, but that doesn’t mean Bluetooth isn’t a helpful tool for addressing viral spread.
Researchers created an artificial society inside a computer to model what would happen to virus transmission under different policies. It helped inform Victoria’s exit strategy.
A simple computer model shows that safety measures can significantly impact both the exponential spread of COVID-19 and mortality rates.
There are different types of epidemiological models. Those that rely on understanding of how disease spread are most useful now that most states have passed their peak case numbers.
The questions researchers around the world are working on day and night.
Currently, the number of confirmed global COVID-19 cases is doubling about every six days. At this rate, Australia’s health sector will be unable to cope.
Applied Epidemiological Modelling has enormous potential to improve how decisions are made about public health in African countries.
