Data-driven Public Health and Social Intervention Modeling to Promote
Effective Policy Responses to Curtailing the COVID-19 Pandemic
We might have to live with COVID-19 until 2025 according to a recent
report published in Science! But if we act smartly, the adverse
consequence of living with the virus could be minimized. Currently, many
states in the United States are seeing spiking cases on a daily basis
due to their inadequate policy responses to COVID-19. This paper
promotes more research on improving SEIR modeling as it will play a
critical role in facilitating the decision-making on promoting and
implementing appropriate public health and social interventions.
Hopefully, policymakers will listen to science and enact and implement
adequate policy responses in combating the COVID-19 pandemic in each of
the states across the United States so that we can win this “war” and
be well prepared for the promising future.
