Title: Models to understand Emerging Pathogens at the Dawn of the Covidocene
Speaker: Andy Dobson
Abstract: The arrival and emergence of Covid-19 has had a major impact on human health and the global economy. The emergence of Covid-19 and other emergent pathogens was not unexpected, here I will review a number of recent models that look at the factors that lead to pathogen emergence. Once they have emerged, it is increasingly hard to stop their spread. So what do models tell us about preventing emergence and what are the relative costs of prevention relative to control once the pathogen has emerged.
