The COVID-19 Pandemic has resulted in two periods of lockdown in areas of Victoria. This project will study the mobility patterns of people in Victoria across suburbs and discover patterns in the number of cases and the amount and type of mobility within and between suburbs. Using mobility data from Jan 2020 until November 2020 and complex network theory especially around ego networks, we will investigate if the hotspot suburbs had some clearly distinguishing mobility characteristics that set them apart from the suburbs that were not hotspots.
