fitVirusCV19_state (United States COVID-19 SIR Model)
Updated 30 Apr 2020
This code will retrieve recent state-level data from Wikipedia and attempts to fit it to a SIR model using structure created by Milan Batista.(https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/74658-fitviruscovid19?s_tid=prof_contriblnk). The model is data-driven, so its forecast is as good as data are. Also, it is assumed that the model is a reasonable description of the one-stage epidemic.
Results are saved in structure res (see function fiVirusCV19_state header). Optionally the results may be printed by:
The plot may be enabled or disabled via (default is on):
To plot the growth rate on the figure use (def value is 2)
