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

Qatar has experienced one of the most intense SARS -CoV-2 epidemics with >55,000 laboratory-confirmed infections per million population. The country’s robust investment in epidemiology research and primary data collection allowed the conduct of a series of studies that yielded novel and influential data on this infection. In this presentation, an overview of the insights learned about SARS -CoV-2 epidemiology will be provided with a focus on epidemic dynamics, reinfection, infection severity and fatality rates, and herd immunity.
