As several countries gradually release social distancing measures, rapid detection of new localised COVID-19 hotspots and subsequent intervention will be key to avoiding large-scale resurgence of transmission. We introduce ASMODEE (Automatic...
A new epidemiological study shows reduced susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 and decreased risk of developing severe symptoms in people aged younger than 20 years, suggesting that children have limited contribution to spread of COVID-19.
About one in five individuals worldwide could be at increased risk of severe COVID-19,
should they become infected, due to underlying health conditions, but this risk varies
considerably by age. Our estimates are uncertain, and focus on underlying...
To mitigate and slow the spread of COVID-19, many countries have adopted unprecedented physical distancing policies, including the UK. We evaluate whether these measures might be sufficient to control the epidemic by estimating their impact on the...
The characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 mean that extreme measures are probably required
to bring the epidemic under control and to prevent very large numbers of deaths and
an excess of demand on hospital beds, especially those in ICUs.
Restrictions on activities in Wuhan, if maintained until April, would probably help
to delay the epidemic peak. Our projections suggest that premature and sudden lifting
of interventions could lead to an earlier secondary peak, which could be...
An exponential growth model was fitted to critical care admissions from two surveillance databases to determine likely coronavirus disease (COVID-19) case numbers, critical care admissions and epidemic growth in the United Kingdom before the...
