EurekAlert: New tool employs air travel data to predict global spread of COVID-19

EurekAlert: New tool employs air travel data to predict global spread of COVID-19. “The COVID-19 Air Traffic Visualization (CAT-V) tool is unique in that it combines infection case data from Johns Hopkins University with detailed air travel data from the International Air Transport Association. Together, these data sets make it possible to generate estimates over time of the numbers of infected passengers who travel from one place to another. The tool allows users to visualize the risk of virus importation or exportation associated with individual air-travel routes. Understanding the COVID-19 propagation patterns, regionally and globally, may help policymakers mitigate the resulting threats to public health.”
