Is this because everything had been said about the topic? Or could it be that for some reasons, a consensus emerged within the a...
Research Proposal

US) to implement efficient containment. There are major differences in both fatality rate and the distribution of probability of death over time between South Korea a...

Virtually all experts quoted in by media stated that a pandemic-like outbreak of COVID-19 in Western countries is becoming unavoidable. The declared objective is to spread out the epidemic over time. However, all available data from China in addition to the concrete experience of people in Wuhan and now Iran shows that this change of policy would l...
