Join Imperial College London’s COVID-19 Response Team researchers as they answer your questions and take you behind the scenes of modelling COVID-19.
Since the start of the new coronavirus outbreak, our researchers have been working hard to understand the epidemic. From research on the spread of the virus and number of people infected to the impact of measures taken to prevent the spread of the disease, the task is huge.
Scientists from around the world are working together to better understand the virus and its spread. Epidemiologists, immunologists, virologists, phylogeneticists and healthcare professionals are all working at lightning speed on different bits of the puzzle. How do we bring it all together to understand what we’re dealing with and what we should do about it? Mathematical modelling helps to understand patterns in data and inform the outbreak response.
But how does it work? How has our understanding of COVID-19 developed? How are we using what we’ve found to inform big decisions?
Dr Katy Gaythorpe, Dr Juliette Unwin and Dr Lilith Wittles will be answering your questions about our research and how their work has changed since the outbreak started. This is also an opportunity for them to understand your thoughts on their work.
