Fraunhofer ITWM vs. Corona: Prediction Model for the Spread of Covid-19

Putting People into Pigeonholes Is Not an Option – Yes, It Is, for the Prediction of Covid-19 Spread!

Press Release / April 30, 2020

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM in Kaiserslautern are developing a prediction model for the spread of Covid-19 which, in contrast to classical models, is better able to detect "suddenly changing infection rates after actions have been taken". In addition, the researchers are simulating several spatially or age-separated groups in a network. The research work is being carried out as part of the "Fraunhofer vs. Corona" action program.
