08 Contact tracing
This project aims to develop models and analyses that incorporates the processes of diagnosis of symptomatic individuals and contact tracing to address important issues relevant to outbreak control: tracing delays; tracing resource allocation among regions with different prevalence or growth rate; adherence of individuals to isolation and to disclosure of contacts; vaccine coverage levels.
  • Contact tracing has been used as one of the major non-pharmaceutical interventions to counteract the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Efficacy of contact tracing relies not only on the tracing protocol and infrastructure, but also on a concurrent program of diagnosis of symptomatic individuals, in order to detect as many infection chains as possible.
