Make people understand the exponential growth of Covid-19

Live

Mission

While it feels silly to stay home – it’s the right thing to do.

While there are many dashboards and explanatory posts out there about how Covid-19 growths, there is none that shows what is going to happen – per country, depending on what action we take. What is the influence of self-isolation, or of waiting one day to close our schools, should we limit events to 1000 people, or 100 or 10?

The goal of this mission is to build a predictive dashboard – regularly updated, where the users can play out all these scenarios in a very easy to understand manner to convince people to staythefuckhome.com

This excellent article - has all the graphs and ideas we need, but we need them automatically updated,interactive and for each country individually.

The data is there: https://github.com/CSSEGISandData/COVID-19

Once we have that, can we further augment our models with current research in epidemiology?

We are intelligent, we understand math, we can use it to fit exponential and other models to existing data, and we want to use it to save our parents, grand-parents and those who can’t do it themselves.

Background

From the New York Times:

"The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a pandemic, and the number of cases continues to rise worldwide. These basic steps can help you reduce your risk of getting sick or infecting others."

Here’s what you can do:

  • If you feel sick, stay home
  • Wash your hands. With soap. Then wash them again.
  • Stay informed
  • With children, keep calm, carry on and get the flu shot
  • Don’t stockpile masks
  • But do stock up on groceries, medicine and resources
  • Concerned about the stock market? Take a deep breath.
