IIT Kharagpur has developed a model to help predict the future spread of COVID-19 which can facilitate decision making in health-care, industry, and even academics.

The study also indicates that the disease may continue to prevail in the country till September-end, a statement issued by the institute said.

Data used for the predictions pertain to the entire country, and for the eight most affected states of Maharashtra, Tami Nadu, Delhi, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, West Bengal, and Madhya Pradesh.

There are several potential factors for this such as separate mobility patterns of people in different phases of lockdown, large-scale migration of labourers, change in diagnostic facilities, the evolution of coronavirus, and so on, said Prof Abhijit Das from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering has developed the logistic model.

"Despite that, the prediction curves show remarkably good fitting with the past data, and can be used for future planning," he said.
