What is it about?
We used geographic analysis of neighboring COVID19 hotspots to demonstrate transmission of infections between these locations. This can identify rapidly increasing locations where COVID infections are occurring, in some cases, earlier than reported in the media or by government authorities

Why is it important?
This did not require manual contact traciing and if implemented could reduce public health burdens of COVID-19.

Zenodo Archive for "Likely community transmission of COVID-19 infections between neighboring, persistent hotspots in Ontario, Canada"
This is the Zenodo archive for the manuscript "Likely community transmission of COVID-19 infections between neighboring, persistent hotspots in Ontario, Canada" (Mucaki EJ, Shirley BC and Rogan PK. F1000Research 2021, 10:1312, DOI: 10.12688/f1000research.75891.1). This study aimed to produce community-level geo-spatial mapping of patterns and clusters of symptoms, and of confirmed COVID-19 cases, in near real-time in order to support decision-making. This was accomplished by area-to-area geostatistical analysis, space-time integration, and spatial interpolation of COVID-19 positive individuals. This archive will contain data and image files from this study, which were too numerous to be included in the manuscript for this study. We also provide a guide which provides a general description of the contents of the four sections in this archive (Documentation_for_Sections_of_Zenodo_Archive.docx). If you have any intent to utilize the data provided in Section 3, we greatly advise you to review this document as it describes the output of all geostatistical analyses performed in this study in detail.
