The quick growth in cases of COVID-19 led some of us to brainstorm on how to help people understand the impact of applying social distancing measures. In a weekend hackathon, we built a tool to help you understand how your actions can prevent the spread of coronavirus in your community.
We would love to get some feedback from the fastai community.
If you play with the tool, you’ll see there’s a huge difference between 5 social contacts a day and 20 a day. At < 5 contacts a day, the disease doesn’t spread. In many countries, at < 10 a day, demand remains within hospitals capacity to cope.
For example: in Canada, we estimate that the difference between 5 and 20 social contacts a day could be around 279,600 deaths.
