HiDALGO developed a local Flu and Coronavirus Simulator (FACS)

A Flu And Coronavirus Simulator (FACS) is being developed as a collaborative effort between the EU project HiDALGO and the Brunel Computer Science Department.

Using this agent-based model, which is updated on a daily basis,  allows to model the Covid-19 spread on a local level. Furthermore, the effect of public health interventions can be estimated. Such models, once verified and validated, can help to support local decision-making for an effective response to the epidemic.
