COVID-19 Outbreak: Modelling the Pandemic

The University's data analysts, scientists and economists are collating, analysing and displaying Covid-19 modelling data to help government and industry predict the course and impact of the virus.

Ulster University's data scientists and economists have been collating, analysing and displaying Covid-19 modelling data to help government and industry predict the course of the virus to develop models that will better predict patient admissions, ICU bed demand and expected mortality rate.

In partnership with the Southern HSC trust  based at Craigavon Area Hospital our experts are interpreting  data on transmission rates, incubation times and as peak infectiousness continues to emerge these models will become even more refined, allowing for more strategic health planning and resourcing, which will ultimately lead to more efficient and effective care for patients.
