Abstract

Project description Indoor spaces (restaurants, offices, shops, etc.) play an important role in the spread of SARS-CoV-2. That is why compliance with regulations, especially in these areas, is of great importance. This study examines how effective the measures are for reducing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in indoor spaces with reduced compliance. The researchers will combine virological and epidemiological data to better understand the spread of the virus in indoor spaces. The changing compliance with rules will be investigated with data from crowd monitoring systems from before, during and after the 'intelligent lockdown'. Using a simulation game, based on this data, the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in indoor spaces is investigated for a large number of scenarios and in the event of changing compliance with rules.
