Feasibility of controlling COVID-19 outbreaks by isolation of cases and contacts [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
BackgroundIsolation of cases and contact tracing is used to control outbreaks of infectious diseases, and has been used for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Whether this strategy will achieve control depends on characteristics of both the pathogen and the response. Here we use a mathematical model to assess if isolation and contact tracing are able to control onwards transmission from imported cases of COVID-19.
