Construction of differential equation model to decribe COVID-19 epidemics

Governments and policymakers take different measures vis-à-vis the COVID-19 crisis, ranging from advice to reduce social activities, to a complete lock down of society and economy. To support them with tools that enable them to fulfill their tasks we constructed a differential equation model for the COVID-19 epidemics using systems biology methodologies.

Study the role of permanent reduction in social interactions ( lockdown ) in suppressing the epidemic

We examined whether such a lockdown could be intermitted with periods with normal social contact, without endangering the success of the strategy.

Model building:

The module was built using modular bottom-up approach where every module describes a certain process and then, when modules are connected together like domino tiles, we can reconstruct the emergent behavior of the whole system.

This is a blueprint model and might be used for various country/data.
If one wans to use it for a particular country/data, we can recommend following steps:

1. Adjust total population by changing initial condition of
