Opinion: Why counting coronavirus deaths is not an exact science

Statisticians Professor Gianluca Baio (UCL Statistical Science) and Professor Marta Blangiardo (Imperial College London) explain why it's hard to calculate the actual number of deaths due to Covid-19 and the steps that need taking to make sense of what is happening. Nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Right? Well, not quite.

Early warning tool for breast cancer prediction in SE Asian women

A researcher at The University of Nottingham Malaysia is collaborating with scientists at Cancer Research Malaysia , Singapore and the United Kingdom to develop a new early warning tool that could help to predict which women in South East Asia are most at risk of developing breast cancer. The work of Dr Weang Kee Ho in the University's Department of Applied Mathematics could help to find out whether it is possible to target expensive mammographic screening at women who are most likely to be affected, enabling doctors to detect the disease in its early stages when it is most treatable.

Computer game encourages people to be more risk-aware

How do you encourage people in the midst of an emergency to stay calm and prioritise their safety over their possessions' University of Bristol researchers have devised a game which they believe could help, by encouraging players to be more risk-aware. Studies into human behaviour in emergencies have shown that the decisions people make during evacuations, be it the exit they choose or whether they collect their personal belongings, can cause significant delays.

Planning for freedom - how statistics can help us eradicate modern slavery

PA 35/18 Experts in modern slavery from the University of Nottingham are using a new way of calculating the precise number of slaves in a city, region or country, helping the fight for freedom. Working with the Home Office, Professor Kevin Bales CMG and Professor Sir Bernard Silverman from the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham have successfully used a technique known as the Multiple Systems Estimate (MSE) to calculate a reliable estimate of the true number of slaves in a specific location.
