Danon et al. Covid-19 transmission in England
Authors use spatial metapopulation model to describe population movement between regions in England and Whales and standard SEIR model to describe Covid-19 spread in each particular region.
Model predicts that a CoVID-19 outbreak will peak 126 to 147 days (~4 months) after the start of person-to-person transmission in England and Wales in the absence of controls, assuming biological parameters remain unchanged. Therefore, if person-to-person transmission persists from February, authors predict the epidemic peak would occur in June.
