Summary: KRISP and the UKZN Big Data Flagship group are tracking the trajectory of the COVID-19 outbreak in South Africa. So far, it seems that the early and increasing state response has helped to avoid a large outbreak. Our results were used by the South African Minister of Health to show the comparison of the the South African and the UK epidemic
KRISP has been created by the coordinated effort of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) and the South African Medical Research Countil (SAMRC).
