Title: Summarising Care Home COVID-19 Outbreak Data
Speaker: James Vaughan
Abstract: 

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected those living in care homes globally and, in Scotland, residents of care homes account for 47% of fatalities between March and June last year. These deaths primarily occurred in the care homes that experienced an outbreak and left a large population of vulnerable residents. I  will present how we automatically summarise and visualise this outbreak data to assist care providers, including the technical details of processing it in Excel.
