Active case forecast
Sunday, September 26
Yesterday, there were 486 active cases in Senegal. Over the last week active cases declined by an average of 19.0% every day. Senegal now has so few cases, it is beyond the functionality of this forecasting tool to generate a forecast. Congratulations on making such good progress but continue to follow the instructions of your country's health officials!
Even though the number of active cases in Senegal are in decline, continue to follow the instructions of your country's health officials to prevent the virus from resurging.
Covid management is safe and straight-forward: Vaccinate, ventilate and mask.
The chart shows total active cases each day. If the day-to-day change seems low, note that the 'new' cases were reduced by those who recovered or died.
What does this really mean?
This forecast for Senegal describes how many active cases the country will have in 2 weeks if the recent growth rate* remains the same.
To "flatten the curve" for our healthcare workers we must get the wiggly line on the left (the daily growth in active cases), below zero. Only when the growth rate is negative have we even begun to recover. Even when the growth rate is below zero, we cannot back off on our efforts to suppress the virus, or it will resurge. We cannot cheat it.
If these numbers seem surprisingly large, I encourage you to read more about the math used to build this forecast.
