COVID-19 technical modelling report and press conference
The modelling work released today by the Commonwealth Government, estimates the case detection rate and variation in transmission of COVID-19 in Australia.
This work represents an important shift in the modelling from scenarios to inform preparedness based on international data, to analyses of the Australian epidemic. It informs understanding of how effective the recent actions taken to slow the spread of COVID-19 have been. It also helps to anticipate likely case numbers and further prepare the health system.
