DESCRIPTION:Raeesa Docrat from the School of Statistics and Actuarial Science will present this seminar. The spread of infectious diseases is a world-wide problem that has a greater and more damning impact on low-income countries. Mathematical modelling is a useful tool to better understand these diseases and to plan prevention and interventions. This presentation investigates the spatial autocorrelation of the reported TB cases in South Africa in an attempt to justify the inclusion of a spatial component in a model for the spread of infectious diseases.
