Beneath is a Python script for analysing the covid workload during the last week in a nursery home. There are notes within the script to clarify the different steps.



Some steps are somewhat cumbersome and can be condensed but it was a good exercise to go through it step by step without dense code. When you plot the data in a Dash graph you get the following graph:
