hospital bed shortage prediction

Predicting hospital bed shortage due to COVID-19

Check out this COVID-19 hospital app I built!

The app predicts the dates during which hospitals in the US are expected to experience bed shortage due to COVID-19.

The app uses COVID-19 data from the Johns Hopkins CSSE repository to fit a SIR model. It also uses state-level demographic information and hospital capacity to predict the number of COVID-19 patients that will require hospital and ICU beds.

For details on the model, please read this medium post.

You can play around with the code on Google Colab.

Note: The app uses data that was available on March 26, 2020
