I like tracking the data the experts are citing.

I feel an obligation to track data that politicians are citing or mis-citing (how do we know which unless we watch? The alternative is to trust them…)

Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University

Confirmed cases and fatalities, keyed to a zoomable world map. In the US, data is county level (except NYC).

Worldometer Corona

Tables, graphs, and charts for the world, and for individual countries. Current and total cases, fatalities, recoveries. Distinguishes between serious cases and others. Click on the US, and get state by state data. Some charts have y-axis that can be toggled between linear and log scales.

NY State Department of Health Covid-19 Tracker

County level data. Trends. Tests/Positives. Fatality breakdowns (county, age, race, sex). Why don’t the comorbidities include asthma and other respiratory ailments? smoking? NY State DOH, you can do better.

Information is Beautiful

Colorful, if slightly busy, charts. Rate of spread by country. Fatality rates by country. Others. The upper two are updated daily. Careful with the lower ones. Thank you Emily!

Our World in Data

One sharp chart, case trends by country. Click on the continents on the right to see more clearly. Updated daily.

Rt Covid-19

For serious data folks – an attempt to capture the reproduction rate – state by state. Seems to update every day or every other day. The data is “bouncy” – I think this reflects state level sources and testing inconsistencies. They link to their math, if you like that stuff, and their science, which is challenging. It looks like The Atlantic gave original impetus to this project, but not clear who is running it now (I see names, not an organization)

UFT Coronavirus InfoHub.

UFT and DoE documents and agreements, plus resources. This matters to me, and my colleagues.

    No one seems to be talking about how new cases & deaths drop on weekends (I assume due to testing & reporting delays). They just say “lowest numbers yet” and then on Tuesday the numbers spike back up. The trend is good overall but I find this a bit frustrating to watch as it has clearly become a pattern.

      I noticed. Just make a mental adjustment, and move on. Or export the data (in some you can highlight, copy, paste into a spreadsheet, and add a 7 day moving average.
