Tracking the spread of COVID-19 across the globe

Posted on

Mathematician Dr. Julien Arino in the UM Faculty of Science is part of a team that received a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) grant worth $666,667 to study the spread of COVID-19. The team is looking at whether community transmission of the virus can be modelled accurately and offer insight into whether travel restrictions, increased isolation, or social distancing are necessary. His work is part of a national COVID-19 Mathematical Modelling Rapid Response Task Force.

Arino asks: “Now that we have a certain number of jurisdictions in Canada reporting local chains of transmission, what are the next likely targets, and what are the effects of interventions?”
