Abstract: This talk will describe key features of the epidemiology of the COVID-19 pandemic with emphasis on the complexity of the data-generating mechanisms -- including delayed and incomplete reporting, local heterogeneity, and uncertain effectiveness of control measures -- and the challenges these pose for control. It will describe some approaches to addressing these challenges, including now-casting and detailed sensitivity analyses in models. It will conclude with a subjective view of some of the big open questions in the epidemiology of COVID-19.
