Model powering rt.live

This repository contains the code of the data processing and modeling behind https://rt.live.

Because this code is running in production, the maintainers of this repository are very conservative about merging any PRs.

Application to Other Countries

We have learned that it takes continuous attention to keep running the model. This is mostly due to data quality issues that are best solved with local domain knowledge.

In other words, the maintainers behind this repo and http://rt.live don't currently have the resources to ensure high-quality analyses for other countries.

However, we encourage you to apply and improve the model for your country!

Contributing

We are open to PRs that address aspects of the code or model that generalize across borders. For example on the topics of:

  • docstrings (NumPy-style),
  • testing
  • robustness against data outliers
  • computational performance
  • model insight
