'Measles Simulator' shows how fast disease can spread in real time
from Fox 45 Now
A simulation developed by researchers shows just how quickly measles can spread if a community doesn't have a high vaccination rate. FRED, A Framework for Reconstructing Epidemiological Dynamics, was developed by the Public Health Dynamics Laboratory in the Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh to simulate epidemics, such as a measles outbreak. The researchers showed how an outbreak can occur from just a single case of measles in several U.S. cities, including Columbus, Ohio.
