Upcoming MERS Analytics

Keep an eye out for posts on the following:

1. Individual Determinants of Cases: Regression analysis on how age, gender, contact with prior confirmed cases, and pre-existing conditions impact severity of disease [As prompted by @dspalten]
2. Seasonality of Disease: Visualization and regression analysis on how climatic variables such as humidity, temperature, and rainfall impact case incidence
3. Delineation of “Severe” Case Category: Split all severe case listings into “ICU” and “stable” buckets, then analyze rates of mortality and comorbidity among both groups. [As prompted by @HelenBranswell & @influenza_bio]
