Simulation studies play a significant role in supporting pandemic disease scenario prediction and facilitating the understanding of how infectious diseases spread. This is of paramount importance for the anticipation, mitigation, and containment of pandemics. Disease-spread simulation models are often used to understand the effects of changes in citizen behavior or government policies, or to study disease outbreak parameters and mitigation-strategy features. Here, we focus on how to improve future global pandemic containment with the help of advanced artificial intelligence and simulation methods.
