Data sources

This is a list of some of the main data sources we use: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Probably the best source of the latest COVID-19 statistics https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Tomas Pueyo has written a number of very good summaries of the strategies to overcome coronavirus https://www.capitaleconomics.com/the-economic-effects-of-the-coronavirus/ Good source of fast-moving China economic stats. https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ If you want to be bombarded with every breaking news story, this is the place https://ncov.dxy.cn/ncovh5/view/pneumonia  Faster than worldometers for Chinese data, but slower on rest of the world data. I don’t think China cases matter anymore. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports I’m less enamoured of the WHO data now than I was at the start of the crisis. They are providing less information now than they were at the start of the crisis, and it sometimes contradicts country-level data. https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 The prettiest pictures, but one of the slower sites to update. I don’t find the charts that useful. https://www.youtube.com/user/MEDCRAMvideos has a daily youtube wrap-up https://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisMartensondotcom has a daily youtube wrap-up https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/covid-19/surveillance/weekly-surveillance-report https://covidtracking.com/data/download/national-history.csv https://ourworldindata.org/covid-vaccinations

  1. Delta variant getting in everywhere but its different presentation means people are agreeing to let it rip through the children……this is a big mistake, it attacks in a different and possibly more serious way……..P681R mutation means more cell to cell fusion


    Probably this leads to more Long Covid since it always was a vascular disease and gets all round the body ……brain imaging before and after Covid………..children should not have to face this.


  2. In summary exponential rise in cases in Russia and UK and yet deaths have flat-lined or down massively. Contrast this to what seems increasingly to be disproportionate focus on this Indian variant.
    At this point any onus to calmly report truth has long since died. The crisis is being ridden like a flogged donkey around the arena by those seeking to milk it for all it is worth.

    Even if massively under-counted, Indian deaths per capita are a fraction of many countries.
    Take a look at some of the studies seeking to estimate the change in transmissibility from one variant to another – the ranges estimates are wide enough to drive a bus through.
    And when the change is low (ie. Japan) it’s explained away despite the statistics purporting to have adjusted for the variable in their logistic regression model. Dear o dear.

    Not a reason to ignore it, but is it unfair to request some proportionality here?
