COVID-19: JHU Live Data Visualization using Tableau
Updated: Apr 3
Johns Hopkins University's (JHU's) Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) is maintaining a live dashboard of the virus' spread. Tableau has gone a step ahead and made this data available for reuse and visualization.
This is an initial attempt to sanity-check the data.
While the data has been reported at the country-level, some of the data is available at the provincial-/state-level for a few countries (US, China to name a couple).
You can filter this dashboard by the status of the reported cases: Active, Confirmed, Deaths, Recovered. The World map is then shaded by the number of reported cases - a heat map.
When you hover over or click a country map, you can see a line chart that shows the growth of the numbers since the beginning of time.
The dashboard is refreshed once a day, automatically.
The data in the Google Sheets document is being maintained by the folks at Tableau.
Data Source: Google Sheets
Ankit Mittal, a very dear friend, pitched in to create this dashboard to present the same data a little differently. This dashboard shows a number of things:
World map of positive cases as well as deaths due to Covid-19
An ordered list of countries by the total positive cases as well as deaths to date
An ordered list of countries by number of positive cases and deaths in the most recent day
The total number of positive cases and deaths to date
Positive cases and deaths in the most recent day
Daily absolute number growth of positive cases and deaths
Day-on-day % growth of positive cases and deaths
