The initial population of India that has been incorporated into the model is 1,380,004,385. The measures taken by Indian authorities by date (Day/Month/Year) are:

The first case reported on 02/02/2020 and the first death reported on 11/03/2020.

The aforementioned information is derived from the data. From this point on we analyze our assumptions, choices and conclusions based on the model.

The basic assumption is that the reported data are not showing the reality of COVID-19 spread. This is based on the fact that there is no efficient testing on the whole population. For our analysis, only daily deaths can give a good estimation of the disease progression. This is the reason why we do not calibrate the model to the data, as we want the model to capture what happens in reality, without overfitting.

With this in mind, we assume that around 50 exposed persons entered the Indian province between 08/02/2020 and 24/02/2020. There is a difference between the first reported case and our assumption. We believe that first cases that were found, were isolated efficiently and later on, new cases entered the country.

The Potential Isolation Effectiveness reached 15% and the Behavioral Risk Reduction reached 75%.

The reaction time of people to the measures is 5 days, on average.

The confirmed cases are around 6% of the real number.

We assume that season has an effect of 20%.

After the loosening of measures at 20/04/2020 and at 04/05/2020 India tries to keep a balance between its economy and the increase of cases. India's goal is to have linear increase in cases instead of exponential. This analysis assumes that the measures stay as they are; if any of the aforementioned measures are lifted, the analysis must be updated.
