Abstract

With the rampaging of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) across the world, analyzing the dynamic characteristics and understanding the evolutionary patterns of clusters are becoming even more crucial for people and policymakers to make timely responses for avoiding injury caused by COVID-19. To solve the scarcity of the fine-grained spatiotemporal data, we construct a novel dataset about the spread of patients during the resurgent period of the COVID-19 epidemic at the Xinfadi Market in Beijing. Leveraging our self-build dataset, we analyze the evolutionary characteristics of the cluster of COVID-19 under anti-contagion policies and obtained some remarkable evolution patterns. These findings can provide significant insights for policymakers and researchers to understand the evolutionary characteristics regarding the cluster of COVID-19 and deploy effective anti-contagion policies.
