EpiNow2: Estimate Real-Time Case Counts and Time-Varying Epidemiological Parameters

Estimates the time-varying reproduction number, rate of spread, and doubling time using a range of open-source tools (Abbott et al. (2020) <doi:10.12688/wellcomeopenres.16006.1>), and current best practices (Gostic et al. (2020) <doi:10.1101/2020.06.18.20134858>). It aims to help users avoid some of the limitations of naive implementations in a framework that is informed by community feedback and is under active development.
