Simulation and designing countermeasures against possible COVID-19 resurgence: predicting spreading of infection, estimating and verifying the effectiveness of countermeasures, and predicting demands on medical resources and optimizing their allocations

Objectives:Modeling and simulation of spreading infection and suppression of SARS-CoV-2, economic impacts of countermeasures, estimation of burden on medical resources is an important policy decision support tool. This part of the research program aims to develop, deploy, and continuously improve a modeling and simulation system to simulate the spread and control of infection in response to the ever-changing dynamics of the situation, and establish methods and operations for systematic data acquisition to make the simulation meaningful.
