Jaiswal and his team concentrated on lowering R-naught, a metric that shows how contagious and infectious the disease is, in an attempt to lessen the infection transmission. “In another case, we focused more on vaccine development,” Jaiswal explained.
Prakash and his team struck a balance between preventing disease spreading and improving vaccines. Prakash explained that they have put a greater emphasis on preventing the spread so that students can apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to simulated real-world interactions through the simulations. Supriya Golas, NASPAA Simulation Education Manager, said, “We hope these tools will prepare students for the next major global event, whether it’s a pandemic or the climate crisis.”
