Analysis of COVID-19 Models To Determine Key Factors in Treatment

The outbreak of COVID-19, became a pandemic in early 2020 and has caused over 2 million deaths worldwide. This paper studies how different factors affect the recovery of patients who have been infected with the virus. This study uses mathematical modeling of the behavior of viral particles on an intercellular level. The results show that different parameters have different effects on the maximum viral load, day of the peak viral load, and recovery time. This analysis can be used to improve patient-specific treatment and guide the development of biosensors.
