covid-19

Mathematical models can help the nation return to (some sort of) normality.

Mathematicians are helping to develop an AI tool to help with diagnosing COVID-19 and making prognoses for infected patients.

How far can virus-carrying droplets fly in different environments — from buses to supermarkets? Maths can provide some answers.

All our COVID-19 related coverage at a glance.

We explore why you need to be extremely careful when combining the reproduction ratios of a disease in different settings, such as hospitals and the community.

In this podcast we explore the famous curve, talk about how to communicate science in a crisis, and explain the maths of herd immunity in one minute.

What is herd immunity and what does it have to do with a number called R0?

How do people in different countries feel about the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken by their governments?

An urgent call has gone out to the scientific modelling community to help fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Two Cambridge mathematicians are helping to lead the charge.

How do mathematical models of COVID-19 work and should we believe them? We talk to an epidemiologist, who has been working flat out to inform the government, to find out more.
