CAVALLERI, Fiorella et al. Epidemiological models in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic: concept, applications and scope. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2020, vol.5, n.2, pp.4-8.  Epub June 01, 2020. ISSN 2393-6797.

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, a new coronavirus that emerged in 2019, has led to a global health and social emergency. Each country chose to take actions taking into account their experience, analyzing the impact in the areas of health, economically and socially, and learning from the experiences reported by other countries. The development of epidemiological models to obtain estimating curves of the disease situation in the population and to project its evolution, acquires special importance in a context of extreme uncertainty, complexity and dynamism.

Keywords : SARS-CoV-2; Mathematical models.
