Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to UP Biomath Response 2 Covid-19, the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics web-site devoted to the mathematical aspects of the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The site aims to provide a platform for rapid communication and exchange of ideas concerning the modelling of the epidemy. We invite all members of the scientific community to contribute to the site by submitting their notes containing models, simulations, preliminary technical reports and drafts of papers for discussions and opinions, as well as useful links related to the outbreak. The contributions should be sent to [email protected] and [email protected]. While the purpose of the site is mainly to generate a discussion and thus the submissions are not peer-reviewed,  they will be moderated by the administrator to ensure that a scientific level of communication is maintained.
