GISAID -Genomic epidemiology of hCoV-19

This phylogeny shows evolutionary relationships of hCoV-19 (or SARS-CoV-2) viruses from the ongoing novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. This phylogeny shows an initial emergence in Wuhan, China, in Nov-Dec 2019 followed by sustained human-to-human transmission leading to sampled infections. Although the genetic relationships among sampled viruses are quite clear, there is considerable uncertainty surrounding estimates of transmission dates and in reconstruction of geographic spread. Please be aware that specific inferred transmission patterns are only a hypothesis.

SIR Model

This ESTEEM worksheet implements an SIR (Susceptible/ Infected/ Resistant) model of epidemiology for vector-borne diseases. Up to three microbial strains with different virulence and transmission parameters can be modeled and the results graphed. Originally designed to explore coevolution of myxoma and rabbits, the model is easily generalized to other systems.

The SIR Build It REVISED 2018 file attached here represents a basic SIR model and demonstrates Farr's law as well as the corresponding S/I phase plot. Additional sheets demonstrate some modifications of the basic model, including the effects of stochasticity.

From Tony Weisstein, Truman State

More Excel based simulations from the BioQUEST ESTEEM collection are available here:https://qubeshub.org/community/groups/esteem/esteem_modules_and_descriptions

Mathematics of the Corona outbreak – with professor Tom Britton

36 minute video on Youtube

"Many scientists try to predict the future and decide upon what preventive measures to take in order to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 infection. But what is R_0 and how do you estimate it? What about #flattenthecurve? How does the math behind all this work and what does the statistical models look like? In this talk professor Britton explains all this."
