The BC COVID-19 Modelling Group works on rapid response modelling of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a special focus on British Columbia and Canada.

The interdisciplinary Group was convened by Caroline Colijn (SFU) and Dan Coombs (UBC) with support from the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.

Projects

Explore SEIR Models

The #seir_ode channel in our Slack discusses this project. Nils Bruin shared a notebook exploring an SIR epidemeoloyg model with contact tracing. Cedric Chauve shared notebooks exploring SIR models with interverntions.

How is SARS-Cov-2 transmitted person to person?

Paul Tupper proposed this project. The #person2person channel on Slack includes discussion about the effectiveness of face masks at preventing transmission.
