Is it possible to predict how the population will be affected by coronavirus as the nation opens up again? UCI Health says it has developed, validated and deployed a computational tool to do just that. … “The modeling tool will ultimately buy precious time in treating those afflicted with the virus,” according to a statement. The tool itself has been validated at UCI and on a smaller cohort from Emory Healthcare in Atlanta. What’s more, the tool updates continually, allowing for weekly improvements, they say.
