I came across an example shared on YouTube by Madhu Mysore. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGUYSeoeHhg&t=2105s.

I changed the code as I am not interested in regions at the moment, but rather in daily/weekly observations. What I am struggling to do is to add a timestamp to the following code. I checked multiple forums and EE developers page but cannot figure it out.

import ee
import pandas as pd
districts = ee.FeatureCollection('users/mdm/za/za_districts')

chirps = ee.ImageCollection("UCSB-CHG/CHIRPS/DAILY").select('precipitation').filterDate('2018-01-01', '2018-12-31').mean()
evi = ee.ImageCollection('MODIS/006/MOD13A2').select('EVI').filterDate('2018-01-01', '2018-12-31').mean()

composite = ee.Image.cat([chirps, evi])

dist_stats = composite.reduceRegions(districts, 'mean', 5000)

dist_stats = dist_stats.select(['precipitation', 'EVI'], ['tot_rainfall', 'med_evi'], retainGeometry=False).getInfo()

dtstats_df = pd.DataFrame()
for dist in dist_stats['features']:
    df = pd.DataFrame([dist['properties']],columns=dist['properties'].keys())
    dtstats_df = pd.concat([dtstats_df, df], axis=0)

dtstats_df = dtstats_df[['tot_rainfall', 'med_evi']]

You can add a timestamp to your dataframe like this:

dtstats_df['date'] = '2018-07-01'

Since you are taking the mean of a collection of images, the time element has sort of been lost. Here I have simply added the middle of your date range as a YYYY-MM-dd formatted date to the dataframe.
