Database to help global supply chain triage

The current idea is to create a database or "DeepPool" to house/store all the supply needs on a per hospital basis (masks, gloves, tests, respirators). This would be registered by the hospitals.
Then use a learning algorithm based on infection rates, recovery timelines, population, age, gender, ect to determine what supplies should go where to make the most impact and save the most lives.
This could be pushed further with a partnership with the manufacturers to help them gauge which factories in what cities need to ramp up production, or which can ramp down based on geography and need. This allows them to repurpose the factory to produce something else which that area or areas need which will provide a more tangible impact.

Please let me know if you would like to collaborate!

    I would be interested in collaborating! I'm a data scientist, I've worked with data to help pinpoint problem areas previously, such as with Tanzania water pumps. Let me know how I can help!
