Members of the Zeeman Institute have been working on the COVID-19 outbreak, providing projections and analysis.
Research in the Zeeman Institute has fed into both SPI-M and SAGE guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. We have particularly focused on: short and medium term projections (including a series of roadmap documents), the impact of vaccination and boosters, the spread of infection in schools, universities and other closed settings, as well as the spread of novel variants. This work has been supported by the UKRI-funded Juniper Consortium and the NIHR MEMVIE project.
Outside the UK, research has been targeted on the dynamics in Kenya (in collaboration with the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Centre) and in extrapolation to worldwide patterns.
