Abstract

Fourier analysis can provide policymakers useful information for analysing the pandemic behaviours. This paper proposes a Fourier analysis approach for examining the cycle length and the power spectrum of the pandemic by converting the number of deaths due to corona-virus disease 2019 in the US to the frequency domain. Policymakers can control the pandemic by using observed cycle length whether they should strengthen their policy or not. The proposed Fourier method is useful for analysing waves in other medical applications.
