Early Research on Novel Coronavirus Published in New England Journal of Medicine

A group of researchers, including MIDAS members, published Early Transmission Dynamics in Wuhan, China, of Novel Coronavirus–Infected Pneumonia in the New England Journal of Medicine. This study analyzed data from the first 425 cases in Wuhan to determine the epidemiological characteristics of the outbreak.

MIDAS members Rui Wang, Tsan Yuk Lam, Joseph Wu, Yang Yang, Gabriel Leung, and Ben Cowling contributed to this research. Congratulations on all of your hard work!

Many MIDAS groups are conducting modeling research on 2019-nCoV and the MIDAS Coordination Center is developing a central data and information resource. MIDAS has also created a dedicated coronavirus research mailing list. If you are conducting research on the novel coronavirus or would like to collaborate with MIDAS, please contact to be added to the mailing list.
