German & Polish Covid-19 ForecastHub

Since May 2020 we have built up the German and Polish Covid-19 ForecastHub for transparent probabilistic real-time forecasts in the current pandemic. Many (inter)national research groups and the signaleteam of the RKI have already joint and actively supported the effort. See the pre-registered study for the systematic evaluation and statistical ensembles and the project website. Here is the preprint for the second wave.
