A package for analyzing early epidemic data


The BETSbets.covid19 package provides likelihood inference for early epidemic data with four key epidemiological events: Beginning of exposure, End of exposure, time of Transmission, and time of Symptom onset. It jointly estimates the epidemic doubling time and incubation period and is able to correct for different kinds of sample selection.
