rapid test distribution system that would save 30% of infections

It is a desktop application that provides how many tests to perform each day of the time horizon and in which zip codes, in order to minimize the speed of expansion. To do this, it takes into account, among other parameters, the number of cases detected, the number of susceptible cases and the possible evolution of the virus. Furthermore, the system is updated daily based on the daily information provided and adjusts the possible scenarios. Also, it provides the expansion map of Covid-19 and its possible evolution.
