Can social media networks predict the spread of COVID-19?

Published literature finds that a region’s social connections to a COVID-19 hotspot correlates with a higher rate of confirmed cases. We summarise the findings of a research paper that uses social media data for Italy and the US to identify the relationship between social connections and spread of diseases. We also highlight several Neudata-listed data providers for readers interested in applying these findings to practice.
