IIT Delhi team has developed a web-based COVID-19 dashboard named as “PRACRITI” (PRediction and Assessment of CoRona Infections and Transmission in India). This dashboard gives detailed state-wise and district-wise predictions of COVID-19 cases in India. This platform will be highly useful for healthcare bodies, local and central authorities, to efficiently plan for different future scenarios and resource allocation.
Important facts of PRACRITI:
- PRACRITI will give details of the R0 (R nought) number of each state and district in India.
- R nought refers to the number of people to whom the disease spreads from a single infected person.
- The details will be based on the data available from sources such as the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), and World Health Organisation (WHO).
