Local researchers forecast spread of Ebola
CBS Boston - 11/17/2014
Don’t be surprised if there are a few more Ebola cases in the United States in the next couple months.
That’s according to a Northeastern University researcher who’s created a forecasting map to predict the spread of the deadly disease. He warns it’s not an exact science, and says a vaccine could change everything.
“We have projections for one or two cases at the most during November, December,” Alessandro Vespignani said.
He’s leading a team of Northeastern researchers who use a computer mapping model to crunch census data with airport activity and countless other factors.
