As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
SOCRATES: an online tool leveraging a social contact data sharing initiative to assess mitigation strategies for COVID-19
Willem et al established a social contact data sharing initiative and an interactive tool to assess mitigation strategies for COVID-19. They illustrated that physical distancing may impact on reducing transmission for COVID-19 and that the effect depends on assumptions made about disease-specific characteristics and the choice of intervention(s).
