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

    I have been in the US for a week and a half (went home for Thanksgiving after not seeing my family for nearly 3 years). I was careful here – wore a N95 mask all the time etc. I did go to two restaurants here where you take mask off while eating (one in LA during my layover before flight back East and one with my family) and then did Thanksgiving with ~10 family members on Thursday mask-less. I had moved up my flight home from Thursday to tomorrow due to Omicron (worried they’d bring hotel quarantine back if I waited) and went today to get the COVID PCR test to board the flight tomorrow. It came back positive.

    Apparently, you’ll test positive for COVID on the PCR test for months so now I need to wait to fully recover (have a slight sore throat starting today I was trying to shrug off before the positive test) and then I need a doctor’s note saying I’ve recovered and am no longer contagious to come back. I pushed the flight back 2 weeks to try to recover and get that sorted (fingers crossed).


    I am trying to work out if I got this in LA or on the flight here and may have given it to the family or if I got it from another family member (i.e. whether I should feel guilty or not). My mother is calling everybody who was there in a minute – that won’t be fun…

    The US is having a major 4th wave. As much as it’s been great to see the family in retrospect this was a bad idea. Then again I am asymptomatic other than a very slight sore throat and if I don’t get any worse than this it is a great testament to the vaccines doing their job.

    I’ll keep you all informed about how it all goes…

    • ‘“We feared a mutation in the amino acid in location 498 in combination with the known 501 mutation from the British variant. We saw how this combination was problematic and binds the virus to the receptor site much more strongly. When you add the mutations at locations 477 and 484 to this, too – it is even worse.”

      The scientists identified the changes at these locations as critical, and a rapid spread of the new variant supports this. “After this research, we continued to track [variants] to see if such a combination appeared – and it did appear in variant B.1.1.529 [omicron],” [Prof. Gideon Schreiber of the department of biomolecular sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot] added.’
