Modeling COVID-19 in Idaho

Experts across the nation are using modeling to help make decisions regarding how to respond to COVID-19. But knowing the infection rate in New York or an estimated death toll in Washington state doesn’t really help our great state of Idaho. To address Idaho’s specific rural population, age distribution and travel, modeling researchers at Boise […]

Modeling COVID-19

Modeling COVID-19

When COVID-19 landed in Washington state, researchers at the Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) in Bellevue quickly switched their focus from tuberculosis and malaria to track and forecast the coronavirus pathogen that was threatening their own country. Mike Fumulare is the group’s lead coronavirus modeler and finds his work days longer than ever, even though […]
