Simulating and forecasting the cumulative confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 in China by Boltzmann function-based regression analyses. Academic Article uri icon


  • Cumulative confirmed cases in China were well fitted with Boltzmann function. Potential total numbers of confirmed cases in different regions were estimated. Key dates indicating minimal daily number of new confirmed cases were estimated. Cumulative confirmed cases of 2003 SARS-CoV were well fitted to Boltzmann function. The Boltzmann function was, for the first time, applied to epidemic analysis.
