Around the world, ordinary people during the COVID-19 lockdown have been transformed into amateur statisticians trying to understand and follow the development of the pandemic. Both the general public and decision-makers have very much needed some type of control and security. Where are we on the infection curve? Is the rate rising or falling? Using modelling and simulation, researchers have developed a system for controlling transmission and optimizing possible interventions against COVID-19.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation has awarded a grant of DKK 4,969,057 for the project Estimation, Simulation and Regulation for Optimal Interventions Related to COVID-19 in a collaboration between the Technical University of Denmark and Aalborg University. The Poul Due Jensen Foundation awarded Kim Guldstrand Larsen and Jakob Stoustrup a grant of DKK 1,205,233 for the project BEO-COVID.
