COVID-19 Resources & Response

The COVID-19 Pandemic is one of the most significant zoonotic events in human history.  In addition to the devastating loss of human life, the pandemic has profoundly disrupted economies, altered how we emotionally interact and comfort each other, and pushed disease modelers and other researchers to find solutions that will help policy makers and civic and industrial leaders guide us in an uncertain world.

 

The CEID is committed to creating and disseminating world-class models that demonstrate where the pandemic is spreading, and why. Our COVID-19 Portal houses these models, which are updated daily by the Coronavirus Working Group. As our research continues, we will update this portal with the forecasts and analysis that will help guide us through the COVID-19 pandemic and safeguard against future emerging disease threats.

 

Please contact us if we can be a resource, if you have questions about our research, or if you’re interested in how you can support research on COVID-19 and emerging infectious diseases.

New model highlights continued COVID-19 risks

A new model posted by the University of Georgia’s Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases shows that the pandemic is not slowing down in the United States. Unlike other COVID-19 mathematical models, the CEID’s model ties together three social distancing scenarios and hard-to-measure interventions like hand washing and wearing a face covering to […]
