From the middle of May, the group is expected to make public daily forecasts of the further course of intensive care-related COVID-19 patients at local, national and European level over the next two years. These predictions can then be used by decision-makers in the public health sector to control the pandemic. Professor Sylvia Thun, Director of the Core Unit for Interoperability at BIH, leads the work package for interoperability in this group.
Forecast of the course of the pandemic
Since April 24, 2020, the interdisciplinary group "Control Forecasting of Intensive Medical COVID-19 Capacities (SPoCK)" led by the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DIVI) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) started its work.
