Mapping the Spread of COVID-19 with Python

Written by Aoife Curran. The purpose of this post isn’t to add new insight into the spread of the coronavirus - there are plenty of experts out there more qualified.

Online R, Python & Git Training!

Hey there! Here at Jumping Rivers, we have the capabilities to teach you R, Python & Git virtually.
