Data sources

This is a list of some of the main data sources we use:

Please visit the Our World in Data for individual country data.

https://www.worldomethttps://ourworldindata.org/covid-casesers.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.

  1. Get ready for the long, fat tail that spikes again in July.

    Though I am quite impressed school hasn’t yet led to an explosion.

    • How many school kids do you reckon are not getting tested? I think the number would be large….got pay that mortgage

    • Spoke to a school Mum in the street this morning .
      They all did the first test, and dutifully reported the results to the school.
      No one she know has done any follow up tests, and the school is not asking.
      I suspect this is quite common. So the figures will be an understatement.
      Unfortunately my niece and nephew, completely unsymptomatic, tested positive first go, so a week off school- and we’re they bored and cross.

  2. Why are we reporting on cases? Seems like hospitalizations or worse makes more sense to know. The less dangerous it gets the more cases there will be.

      “We have identified a phenomenon of omicron recoverers who deteriorate and reach a severe condition after about 10 days, with problems that are not necessarily related to the airways”
