Exploring the Utility of Google Mobility Data During the COVID-19 Pandemic in India: Digital Epidemiological Analysis [open pdf - 1MB]
From the Abstract: "Association between human mobility and disease transmission has been established for COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], but quantifying the levels of mobility over large geographical areas is difficult. Google has released Community Mobility Reports (CMRs) containing data about the movement of people, collated from mobile devices. [...] The aim of this study is to explore the use of CMRs to assess the role of mobility in spreading COVID-19 infection in India."
