A model for the early COVID-19 outbreak in China with case detection and behavioural change
Keywords:COVID-19, Behavioural Change, Screening Intensity, Protective Measures
We investigate a model of the early stage of the COVID-19 epidemic comprising undetected infected individuals as well as behavioural change towards the use of self-protection measures. The model is fitted to China data reported between 22 January and 29 June 2020. Using fitting results, we then consider model responses to varying screening intensities.
