Epidemic mathematical modelling.
Future transmission of viruses from wildlife to humans is inevitable. As such, the modelling of epidemics will become increasingly important to help policymakers. However, developing, implementing and evaluating simulations of epidemic disease spread and control options in real-time is no easy task.
- The science surrounding pandemic preparedness will receive growing attention from academics and biotechnology industries.
- Epidemic modelling may in the future also project indirect fatalities from an epidemic.
- Cross-discipline collaboration to fight future pandemics will benefit from crowdsourcing initiatives developed to fight COVID-19.
