The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant changes to how we manage our daily lives. We have all had to deal with self-isolation, social distancing, and, now, the reopening of the country and a return to a more “normal” existence. While the threat of the pandemic is not gone, individuals are navigating the need to balance daily activities with the risks of the spread of the virus. Having a better understanding of community-level risk, based on publicly available data, can help each of us to decide what decisions and trade-offs we are willing to make.
The next Science Café Cleveland event will be a virtual discussion with Ken Loparo, the Arthur L. Parker Professor at the Case School of Engineering. Titled “How Can We Manage Daily Needs During a Pandemic? Data-Driven Modeling to Estimate Community-Level Risk,” the event will be held today (Aug. 10) from 7 to 8 p.m.
Loparo will discuss the risks of dealing with a virus that is dominating the world headlines and the actions of our daily lives.
