Are We Herd-Immune Yet
This is a herd-immunity tracker for the COVID-19 vaccine race in the United Arab Emirates. It uses Numpy for polynomial regression to estimate the number of doses on a chart (matplotlib).
The program is able to pull open data provided by the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA)’s website, specifically the number of doses per 100 persons. The number of doses per day is stored in a comma-separated values (CSV) file, which is used in the estimation model.
The program also generates an HTML page with the latest data and graph based on
template.html. There is a
make.sh file, which is what I use to push the
page to my server which hosts
The following programs should be installed on your system.

Pulling the data will also automatically generate the HTML file and the updated chart.
If you want to just generate the chart and the HTML page, you can run:
$ python3 main.py gen
