Description of the competition

The essential basis of this competence is to be able to predict the number of people who have been affected (confirmed cases) or unfortunately declared dead by the COVID virus19 , in Latin America. If you can identify factors in your analysis that may affect the rate of transmission of COVID-19, you can share them.

We understand that this is a serious situation, and in no way do we want to trivialize the human impact this crisis is causing by predicting deaths. Our goal is to provide better methods of estimation that can help medical and government institutions prepare and adjust as pandemics develop.
