Opinion of the Helmholtz Initiative "Systemic epidemiological analysis of the COVID-19 epidemic"

Experts of the Helmholtz Association assess the current situation in Germany in an opinion. They model the further course of the epidemic, taking into account various scenarios of a relaxation of the contact ban. This analysis serves to determine a daily Rt-value and to make statements on how the epidemic would develop if the reproduction rate (Rt-value) is kept at this level. New data are entered into the models on a daily basis and the effect of relaxing measures is reassessed accordingly.

The Helmholtz Association, in close cooperation with partners from science and industry, politics and society, would like to hereby make its contribution to overcoming the COVID-19 infection, because broad scientific expertise opens up different perspectives on this major challenge and ultimately shows the best way out of the pandemic.
