To Navigate Risk In a Pandemic, You Need a Color-Coded Chart

External News Details

At Georgia Tech in Atlanta, a team led by Joshua Weitz is trying to address that certainty problem by building a risk map that is grounded in data that addresses hazard and risk. Their Covid-19 Event Risk Assessment Tool uses data on new and recent cases, harvested from state health departments and collated by the volunteer Covid Tracking Project, and subjects it to an algorithm that accounts for a predictable level of under-reporting because of the scarcity of tests. It feeds that result into a mathematical model designed to answer this question: What is the probability that someone capable of spreading Covid-19 is attending any large event?
