###Modeling SIRD Epidemic Dynamics Using R and Shiny This repository contains the code used to produce an interactive Shiny application which allows a user to manipulate various disease characteristics (infection, recovery, and death rate) in order to see their impacts on the progression of the epidemic in a model population.
I am writing a series of blog posts on this subject. This introductory post explains a bit about my approach and highlights the equations used for this model.
You can run this model locally (on your own Shiny server) using the command runGitHub("shinySIRD", "jpoles1")
You can also see this model in action by visiting a hosted copy on ShinyApps.io (thanks to the RStudio/Shiny team for providing this great hosting resource!)
