Special Thanks

This website is largely inspired by the Epiforecasts team and their SARS-CoV-2 reporting. Additionally, their open sourcing of cutting edge modeling approaches was hugely beneficial.

The website was built using the distill framework (Allaire, Iannone, and Xie 2020) and R Markdown (Allaire et al. 2020).
