Bayesian Model for COVID-19 Spread Prediction

Bayesian Model for COVID-19 Spread Prediction

At present time, there are different methods, approaches, data sets for for modeling COVID-19 spread [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. For the predictive analytics of COVID-19 spread, we used a logistic curve model. Such model is very popular nowadays. To estimate model parameters, we used Bayesian regression [7, 8, 9]. This approach allows us to receive a posterior distribution of model parameters…
