What is the self-isolation index?
Higher value of self-isolation level, the better
Self-isolation is one of main measures in fight against coronavirus epidemic. To represent how well people cope with this task, we came up with a score that shows level of self-isolation in different cities. To do this, we compare level of urban activity now and on a normal day before epidemic. If it is the same as in rush hour of a normal weekday, then level of self-isolation is low, 0 points, and this is bad. If city is quiet as at night — this is 5 points. The higher score, the harder it is for virus to spread.
