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

During a pandemic like COVID -19, there is an urgent need to understand how easily the infection is spreading. Values like the reproduction number R, which measure transmission in a population, have therefore become prominent terms. But how are these numbers estimated? What are their limitations? And what can they tell us about how to control epidemics?
