Purple & UST DataLabs Deliver Geographical Links Between Public WiFi and the Rates in Covid Cases

In February, Purple and UST DataLabs worked together to see if there was a correlation between social behavior and the rates of C19 cases in Manchester, York, and London.

Through the combination of an enriched dataset created by UST, detailing the movement of the UK workforce during the pandemic, and Purple data collected from over 36,000 WiFi hotspots in the UK, we were able to view a large dataset and evaluate trends in social behaviour in areas of the country with significantly different covid restrictions.
