Fragestellung(en) der Befragung

Due to its high lethality amongst the elderly, nursing homes are in the eye of the COVID-19 storm. Emerging new test procedures, such as antigen or RT-LAMP tests, might enable us to protect nursing home residents by means of preventive screening strategies.
Here, we develop a novel agent-based epidemiological model for the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in nursing homes to identify optimal preventive testing strategies to curb this spread. The model is microscopically calibrated to high-resolution data from actual nursing homes in Austria, including the detailed networks of social contacts of their residents and information on past outbreaks.
