The spread of SARS-CoV-2 has now been declared a pandemic by WHO. The number of COVID-19 cases in Germany and other European countries continues to rise. However, it is unclear how strained the health care systems in Europe, but also in the different regions in Germany, will be. Modelling approaches in infection epidemiology can provide estimates of this. We would like to invite experts on modelling of infectious diseases and containment/delay measures to join in our discussion on how to build appropriate SIR-Modells (and expand them), which parameters to use, or even to work on a model together.
