Researcher receives funding through the Ontario COVID-19 Rapid Research Fund

Wednesday, August 5, 2020

The Ontario government contributed $148,000 for Chris Bauch’s research project, “How to Re-open Ontario's Economy Without Causing a Resurgence of COVID-19”. Bauch and his team will combine data from various sources to create a mathematical model of COVID-19 transmission to identify strategies to re-open the province without causing a second wave and--if necessary--how to re-close schools and workplaces in the face of a second wave while minimizing economic impacts.

The model will project cases, hospitalizations and deaths under different approaches to re-open the economy. Read more about the modelling project.
