Yagan Quoted on Coronavirus Models

Osman Yagan was quoted in Defense One on Coronavirus models. “We believe that there is some similarity between ‘a virus mutating and becoming less easy to infect individuals’ and ‘people being careful about social-distancing and thus becoming less easy to get infected.’ The analogy here is strengthened by the fact that those who do not obey social-distancing are more likely to infect each other (a la carrying a second-strain of the virus) than those who are obeying the guidelines.”  Read the article here.
