Project details

Short description

As of June 2020, no vaccine is available for the COVID-19 pandemic. The consequently enforced lockdowns

are already crippling the German, Czech, and EU economies; however, they have allowed hospitals to gain

valuable time to increase and/or re-allocate their capacity. Using our expertise in discrete mathematics, in

this proposal, we investigate the idea of a mathematical tradeoff between hospitalization capacity and the

economic GDP losses. Estimating and gathering contagiousness data in different regions for both Germany

and Czech Republic, we seek to prepare a larger joint research proposal . Details are available on request.
