The New Brunswick Institute for Research, Data, and Training’s (NB-IRDT) 10-day COVID-19 outcome model shows New Brunswick is currently tracking towards a best-case scenario outcome, according to data as of April 7.
NB-IRDT researchers, led by Dr. Ted McDonald, developed their prediction models by looking at outcome data as of March 31, 2020 from other countries with a range of COVID-19 response strategies, from strict lockdowns and widespread testing to slow implementation of restriction and low testing rates. Researchers also considered demographics, such as density and age structures.
