Diffusion Factors and Mortality from Covid-19

Diffusion Factors and Mortality from Covid-19

The project is the result of an international collaboration with Ilaria Capua (University of Florida) and Elio Borgonovi (Bocconi). It aims to analyze the diffusion factors and mortality from Covid-19 through three work packages:

  1. Reconstruction of real mortality data, compared with observed and expected data. The analysis aims to process data at the municipal level, if possible, with national coverage and a special focus on the Lombardy region.

  2. Analysis of the differences observed between men and women in the incidence and mortality from Covid-19, considering in particular gender differences in socio-behavioral factors.

  3. Study of possible repercussions of the pandemic on other diseases whose treatment has been postponed, limited or slowed down because of the emergency due to Covid-19.
