In the latest two years, Covid-19 taught us many things. Among them is the critical role of information diffusion in health emergencies and crisis management.<br>Not only the complexities of science knowledge and the scientific method are difficult to communicate to a broad audience, but the contemporary media context – increasingly dominated by digital social networks – tends to yield extreme oversimplifications, polarized narratives and misinformation spreading, thus leading to a phenomenon that has been frequently called information epidemic, or «infodemic».

Network science helps us to better understand the evolution of the highly interconnected world in which we live, and complex networks have become the main paradigm for modelling the dynamics of interacting systems. However, networks are intrinsically limited to describing pairwise interactions, whereas real-world systems are often characterized by higher-order interactions involving groups of three or more units and complex connections. Higher-order mathematical structures, such as hypergraphs and simplicial complexes, are therefore a better tool to map the real organization of many social, biological and man-made systems.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, for the first time in an epidemic, it has been possibile to track through digital platforms in real time all the dramatic changes in human behaviors caused by public health advice, stay-at-home orders and self-imposed limitations. Digital traces such as mobile phone data, social media posts, search engine queries, bank transactions have revealed how the pandemic has deeply changed our daily habits, such as mobility patterns and social and economic interactions.

There is a new simple, robust, scaling law in the studies of human travel, that includes a component rarely considered in previous theories: visitation frequency, i.e. the number of trips that someone makes to a location per unit of time. In a new paper recently out in Nature, a team of researchers including former ISI affiliate Michael Szell suggests that the number of visitors to any location decreases as the inverse square of the product of their visiting frequency and travel distance.

In 2019, following a decrease of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine’s coverage and a 30% rise in measles cases worldwide, the World Health Organization declared vaccine hesitancy one of the 10 biggest threats to global health. Alternative vaccination schedules are becoming more and more popular among parents: identifying them and understanding the determinants of their hesitancy toward vaccines could help addressing their concerns through targeted interventions.

What is the effect of social inequalities on the mitigation of COVID-19? How did the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) correlate with the human economic and development conditions of different communities in a big metropolitan area like Santiago de Chile? And how can anonymized mobile phone data help us in getting a data-driven characterization of the unfolding of the epidemic?
