The COVID-19 Forecast Hub
This site maintains the authoritative, up-to-date record for forecasts of COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations in the US, created by dozens of leading infectious disease modeling teams from around the globe, in coordination with CDC.
Every Monday dozens of modeling teams from across the globe submit forecasts of the trajectory of the COVID-19 outbreak in the US to our forecast data repository. We take these data and build a single ensemble forecast.
Public health impact
We work collaboratively in an open-science framework, welcoming participation from modeling teams around the globe to submit predictions from their best COVID-19 models.
