ESRF-ILL Online Colloquium

"Transmission dynamics and control of COVID-19: what have we learned so far"

Neil Ferguson, Imperial College London

The COVID-19 pandemic has a profound global impact on health, society and the economy. I will review the key scientific evidence around viral transmissibility and severity which informed the control policies adopted across much of the world in March, before discussing the current stage of the pandemic, current control policy challenges and the prospects for the next few months. Throughout, I will highlight how epidemic modelling informed both scientific understanding and policy making.
