RIVMNational Institute for Public Health and the Environment is conducting research on the novel coronavirus that includes the use of models. When the studies are completed, the results are published. RIVM publishes about the research studies in international peer-reviewed journals. This leads to open access publications: publications that are accessible to everyone. The codes and data we use are also public. These are the models and publications that are related to these research activities.
