Targeted methods to control the spread of COVID-19

Two models exploring how targeted interventions can be used to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2, rather than harsh social distancing mandates like school and workplace closures, have been published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. 

Written by researchers associated with the University of Georgia’s Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases, “Five Approaches to the Suppression of SARS-CoV-2 Without Intensive Social Distancing,” describes alternatives to social distancing mandates that, when combined with general non-pharmaceutical interventions like wearing a facemask, can successfully slow the spread of the novel coronavirus if widespread testing is adopted.
