City-scale agent-based simulators for the study of non-pharmaceutical interventions in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic

Team Lead: Rajesh Sundaresan

Note: This is a pre-print study which has not been peer-reviewed yet.

We highlight the usefulness of city-scale agent-based simulators in studying various non-pharmaceutical interventions to manage an evolving pandemic. We ground our studies in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and demonstrate the power of the simulator via several exploratory case studies in two metropolises, Bengaluru and Mumbai. Such tools become common-place in any city administration’s tool kit in our march towards digital health.
