University of Southern California: A 10-Day Forecast for COVID-19

University of Southern California: A 10-Day Forecast for COVID-19. “What if we could predict the future and see what is going to happen with the spread of COVID? That something is what USC Viterbi Professor Roger Ghanem of the Civil and Environmental department of Engineering and his doctoral student, Xiaoshu Zeng, are trying to do with their research. Ghanem, Gordon S. Marshall Professor of Engineering Technology, and Zeng hope to help contain the spread of the virus by looking at recent surges in COVID-19 cases. They have developed a model to make reliable predictions and forecast the number of daily new COVID-19 cases for the next week for individual states and the entire U.S., allowing scientists in the impacted areas to advise policymakers to take mitigating actions such as social distancing and mask mandates.”
