|Mobility-based models Interest1 #701138|
Mobility-based models (spatiotemporal) for epidemic spreading, targeted interventions, and predictions. This project aims to analyze people’s internet search behaviour regarding health-related information and social media use to guide real-time surveillance of emerging diseases and help predict epidemics. A digital surveillance system would act as an early warning system and help public health authorities and hospitals to plan and respond to emerging infectious disease threats.
