COVID-19 modelling

COVID-19 modelling is undertaken regularly to enable SA Health to prepare for managing COVID-19 in our health services.

The modelling shows estimated peaks in cases, infections, and hospitalisations.

South Australian modelling takes into account the population age distribution, vaccination status (current and future prediction), the number of people who have already had a COVID-19 infection, characteristics of COVID-19 variants and how many COVID-19 cases are being detected through testing.

This ongoing modelling also allows South Australians to consider taking steps to protect the health of themselves and their loved ones, including staying home when sick, getting vaccinated and getting tested with symptoms.
