There is a lot of discussion about what we can expect from the ongoing pandemic. Many scientists try to predict the future and decide upon what preventive measures to take in order to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 infection. But what is R_0 and how do you estimate it? What about #flattenthecurve? How does the math behind all this work and what does the statistical models look like? In this talk professor Britton explains all this.

Prof. Britton has worked with Makerere University and the Department of Mathematics particularly in the supervision of students.
