COVID-19’s mitigation model


A math model to understand the pandemic

What are the variables affecting virus spread and how to predict it?. This project aims to provide a comprehensive network model of the COVID-19, including its geo-spatial patterns. The objective is to create a picture of the virus network on the . micro (city and neighborhood), meso (country) and macroscopic (worldwide) level, supporting the prediction of future outbreak patterns.
