Mathmatical Modeling Infectious Disease I
From Dave Frank
We will go through infectious disease modeling basics such as SIR models, Reproduction Ratio and Herd Immunity and examples of several models. On two subsequent Fridays, lectures will focus on discussing COVID-19 models which are used for decision making today. In each of these two lectures, models will be introduced, the purpose of the model and major assumptions will be discussed and a short demonstration given.
