Example AIC weights table for SIR models fit to the New Zealand Ministry of Health active case data

(I believe this is confirmed + suspected cases)

Example AIC weights table for SIR models fit to the EUDC active case data for New Zealand

(I think this may be just confirmed cases)

NOTE: The exact results you get may depend on the day you access the EUDC data, as it keeps getting updated!
