Indian researchers build Pracriti, web-based Covid-19 dashboard

IIT Delhi researchers have developed a web-based dashboard in order to predict the spread of deadly Covid-19 in India. Pracriti (PRediction and Assessment of CoRona Infections and Transmission in India), a mobile-friendly dashboard gives detailed state-wise and district-wise predictions of Covid-19 cases in India.
It is said that, Pracriti will be highly useful for healthcare bodies, local and central authorities, to efficiently plan for different future scenarios and resource allocation. Also, according to the researchers, a key parameter of interest on Covid-19 is the basic reproduction number R0 and its countrywide variability.
R0 refers to the number of people to whom the disease spreads from a single infected person. For instance, if an active COVID-19 patient infects two uninfected persons, the R0 is two. Hence, reduction of R0 is the key in controlling and mitigating the Covid-19 in India.
PRACRITI provides the R0 values of each district and state in India based on the data available from sources such as the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Govt. of India; National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), and World Health Organisation (WHO).
A team of volunteers from IIT Delhi, Mr. Hargun Singh, Mr. Ravinder, Mr. Devansh Agrawal, Dr. Amreen Jan, Mr. Suresh, and Mr. Sourabh Singh have developed this dashboard. The team was led by Prof. N. M. Anoop Krishnan, in collaboration with Prof. Hariprasad Kodamana,
