Speakers in this symposium have all used mathematical modelling to support Australia and New Zealand's COVID-19 responses. Their work has provided scientific advice to the highest levels of government and has contributed to Australia and New Zealand's relative success in suppressing COVID-19. In this symposium speakers will discuss their modelling work and it's impact on the COVID-19 response. We will hear how mathematical modelling was used to provide situational assessment, support government intervention strategies and protect vulnerable communities.
