Modeling effectiveness of interventions for COIVD-19 in Addis Ababa
- Social distancing and facemask are non-pharmacological interventions proven to reduce
COVID-19 transmission and for the containment of the outbreak.
- For these interventions to be effective high level of compliance or coverage is critical.
- Using an advanced compartmental SEIR mathematical model, this brief present’s
scenario based estimation and forecasting of the effectiveness of interventions in
reducing admission to ICU and death due to COIVD-19.
- The SEIR model assume community transmission and hence Addis Ababa has taken as a
case as to demonstrate the effectiveness of the different interventions.
