This is a personal project to build a simple COVID-19 tracker for Australia with Dash.

Key functions of this dashy will be to

  • Display daily trend in COVID-19 cases over recent period
  • Compute simple projection of cases, by estimating the current effective reproduction rate (R_eff) and assuming continued growth at this rate
  • Toggle view between key states
  • Specify custom values of R_eff to provide simple scenario modelling

Potential development

  • More refined estimate of R_eff by applying additional smoothing to data
  • Compute confidence interval around R_eff and display prediction range
  • More refined projections with non-constant R_eff
  • Pre-built scenarios to select
