IDP - Infectious Dynamics of Pandemics: Mathematical and statistical challenges in understanding the dynamics of infectious disease pandemics

The Royal Society initiative to provide Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) has garnered a large number of scientists across the UK working voluntarily in a wide range of issues associated with the current pandemic. In this talk I will describe the outputs of the fifty odd scientists with expertise, broadly speaking, in fluid mechanics who have been considering aspects of the airborne transmission of the virus. Post lockdown major risks of infection are associated with occupancy of public buildings such as restaurants, schools, and other places where people congregate indoors, and in public transportation. I will describe what we have learnt over the past couple of months about the impact of building ventilation, the deposition of droplets, modes of exhalation and inhalation and other factors such as the effects of occupancy levels and the movement of people in these indoor environments, and what seem to be the key outstanding questions.
