Biography:

An interactive notebook based on a COVID-19 model by Haiyun Damon-Feng, Henry Zhao, and Zhilan Feng. It demonstrates scenarios of relaxing the lockdown restrictions and illustrates that continuous efforts of physical distancing may be necessary to avoid a second wave with high peak. Get simple explanations by clicking on the words or curves in the notebook. More explanations of the model are provided here. Many examples of epidemiological models can be found in the book "Mathematical Models in Epidemiology" by Fred Brauer, Carlos Castillo-Chavez, and Zhilan Feng.
