Abstract

COVID-19 continues to impact different parts of the world. In countries where the “living with COVID” strategy is adopted and endemic is likely to be declared, radical public health measures, such as lockdowns, have been and will be removed. However, the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 persists and waves continue to emerge, putting pressures on the healthcare system. Because the majority of the population have been immunised, the number of the vaccinated and recovered may not be informative measures to study transmission dynamics.
