COVID-19 Modeling

Since the first noted case of COVID-19 in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, the disease has spread across the globe. To date, it has infected almost 8 million people and killed 400,000 worldwide.

Mathematics and statistics plays an important role in understanding the key pandemic parameters, such as the transmission and recovery rates, and determining the primary routes of transmission. LTU has a team of researchers, Professors Johnston, Pell, Anyaiwe and Nelson that are activity working to study the spread of the disease.  The resulting models are also crucial to forecasting the spread of the disease and the effects of potential public policies. To learn more about compartmental models of disease transmission (such as the SIR model), consider the following link:
