An independent prior for parameters was used. The Bayesian method was compared with classical method of estimation to know the most efficient estimator under different distributional assumptions through a simulation study. In order to facilitate comparison among these estimators, Mean Squared Error (MSE) was considered as a criterion. Furthermore, based on the simulation, it was deduced that MSE of the Bayesian estimator is smaller than all the classical methods of estimation for SUR model while Normal distribution was considered as an ideal distribution&nbsp; in generation of disturbances in any simulation study.</p> Ojo O.

The first one refers to the number of positive cases of being infected by COVID-19. The second one refers to deaths. It was possible to estimate the dynamics of the phenomenon with both instruments, resulting in the presence of more than 106 thousand positive cases of COVID - 19, with an approximation of more than 9 thousand deaths, all of this, in approximately 4 months. In the first case, these were the results, which when updated with data issued by the federal government's health sector in November, changed the contagion scenarios and the estimates of deaths from covid-19.</p> Juan Bacilio Guerrero Escamilla, Sócrates López Pérez, Yamile Rangel Martínez ##submission.copyrightStatement## Wed, 27 Jan 2021 00:00:00 +0000
