Age-structured impact of social distancing on the COVID-19 epidemic in India

June 8, 2020

This paper presents a mathematical model of the spread of the coronavirus that takes into account both the age and social contact structure in India. The model is used to study the impact of the most common social distancing measures that have been initiated to contain the epidemic in India: workplace non-attendance, school closure, “janata curfew” and lockdown.

The criteria for selecting these communities is: people with the highest access barriers, the highest chance of contracting COVID and people living in overcrowded places.
