Understanding the statistics of the coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic
Statistician Dr Maarten van Smeden discusses the statistical data that underlies how we understand the coronavirus.

Our understanding of the coronavirus relies heavily on the ways medical data is collected, distributed and checked across the world. But the ways medical data are analyzed and communicated are prone to error and can lead to misconceptions. Statistician Dr Maarten van Smeden (UMC Utrecht) will discuss the nature of the data underlying COVID-19 statistics. Is the data of high enough quality to make trustworthy predictions for the future?

With our colleagues of UMC Utrecht we bring you this webinar. At this website - at time of the webinar - you’ll see a banner with the live stream. Or follow this Zoom-link.
