Could you me help to understand ?

What is the meaning of target in train.csv ?

Number of deaths

“Target” is the number of confirmed deaths and “Cases” is the number of reported infections. That means the meaning of target is the number of confirmed deaths.

Check out the provided notebook, which has some explanations about the target near the end

i think that evaluation work about number of deaths pr day and not total number
