If the outbreak ended, does that mean the interventions worked? (Jon Zelner talk tomorrow)

Jon Zelner speaks tomorrow (Thurs) at 1pm:

PREDICTING COVID-19 TRANSMISSION

In this talk Dr. Zelner will discuss some ongoing modeling work focused on understanding when we can and cannot infer that interventions meant to stop or slow infectious disease transmission have actually worked, and when observed outcomes cannot be distinguished from selection bias.

Dude’s an epidemiologist, though, so better check his GRE scores before going on. Also, test his markets to check that they’re sufficiently thick and liquid (yuck)!
