COVID-Lab: Mapping COVID-19 in Your Community
Map of Current Cases
Projected Cases for 4 Weeks
Social Distancing Over Time
An interdisciplinary team from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania, alongside global experts, are tracking and projecting the COVID-19 epidemic across 519 counties with active outbreaks as it spreads across the United States. Utilizing data from a variety of publicly available sources, the researchers built their model to observe how social distancing, population density, and daily temperatures affect the number and spread of COVID-19 infections over time across a county, accounting for population characteristics, such as age, insurance status and smoking prevalence. For social distancing, which the model identified as the most important factor in reducing transmission, the researchers used cell phone movement data. For the latest comments on our findings from the lead researchers, read this blog post, and to learn more about the methods behind this model, see this abstract.
