Mathematicians world-wide are contributing to the understanding of the Covid-19 epidemic, working with specialists such as microbiologists and virologists on mathematical models that take into account the different situations in different countries. This page collects these activities and projects from all over the world to provide a global view of the contributions of mathematics to help in the fight against COVID-19.
ICIAM (International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) is a society of mathematical societies from around the world. The links and information present in this page have been forwarded to us by our member societies, and represent informatio hubs for applied mathematics activities related to COVID-19 of our member societies.

- By applying population growth models to worldwide corona data, Eindhoven statisticians/data scientists are able to calculate the expected number of new infections and deaths from the Covid-19 virus for the near future. For twelve countries - China, South Korea, the US, Canada, Iran, Italy, France, the UK, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands - they are trying to make the most accurate daily forecast, one to three days ahead, and for some countries also estimate the maximum number of confirmed infections. Using the daily new data, they continuously improve their models to make the estimated numbers more reliable. Follow this page for a daily update on their latest predictions: News and overview
