Covid Response Simulator // Scenario Planning for Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs)

Covid Act Now

5 followers.

The COVID Response Simulator is a localized, customizable version of the public Covid Act Now (CAN) model. With it, you can take a powerful SEIR epidemiology model and customize it for your county to help plan your response to COVID. The inputs and assumptions in the simulator are modifiable and can be changed to reflect your local realities. In addition, you can project the impact of specific Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) for your county, such as closing schools, restricting business activities, and canceling large events. Based on your inputs, the simulator generates data and graphs illustrating COVID forecasts with and without these NPIs, including estimated case numbers and hospitalizations.
