Transportation has been greatly affected by the Coronavirus pandemic but it was amazing seeing how companies were able to adapt and send materials and medical supplies via drones and other autonomous vehicles.
That was, again, another great review by Prof. Haluk Eren on the book Epidemic Logistic. I do hope to spend some time reading the book and, possibly, gaining a better understanding
Nice work! there needs to be a framework in place to government/decision-makers to help it, citizens, to the barest minimum when there is any pandemic in the future. We are not praying for it but this is just the beginning, pandemics will keep on coming one way or the other, which might either be natural or man-made i.e as a bioweapon, because the world is now evolving from fighting with human/guns, and evolve to using robot/bioweapons. therefore any responsible nation should have in place a model to optimally allocate resources when any epidemic strike or even during hard time of its citizens. just in the recent COVID-19 pandemic so many nations have failed it, citizens, because of lack of any roadmap/framework in place.
Epidemic Logistic Modelling a New Perspective on Operations Research is a book reviewed by Prof. Haluk contains research about epidemic dynamics. Thus, the information in this text will help decision-makers in the managing or handling infectious disease outbreak in an effectively and efficiently.
I highly recommend this podcast!
It has been clear to all that the world would not be the same after the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s good to know that people are actually planning to make mobility and transport available in future situations.
Thanks for the book review Dr. Haluk Eren.
