Our researchers use a stochastic model to simulate COVID-19 spread in New Zealand, and report an estimate for its effective reproduction number (Reff) before and after implementation of Alert Level 4.
Te Punaha Matatini researchers have developed a structured model to look at the spread of COVID-19 in different groups within the New Zealand population.
A New Zealand-specific interactive epidemic simulation app developed by Dr Audrey Lustig, Associate Investigator at Te Pūnaha Matatini, and hosted by the University of Auckland’s Centre for eResearch, has just been released.
An analysis of interventions used around the world, equivalent to New Zealand’s Alert Levels 1-4, and their effect on the ability of COVID-19 to reproduce effectively.
How equitable is our healthcare system? Our researchers and colleagues analysed available data to estimate COVID-19 infection fatality rates by ethnicity in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our investigators model COVID-19 containment and elimination scenarios in New Zealand, as the country considers an exit from a four-week period of strong population-wide control measures.
Our researchers compared suppression and mitigation strategy outcomes in COVID-19 using a simple model with New Zealand-specific parameters.
