Take steps to protect yourself
Wear a facemask
if you are sick
We are facing an unprecedented health crisis with the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). With so much at stake, we feel it is important to have the worldwide stats in a simplified data representation that can be analyzed by anyone.
Our dashboard is designed to give you the easy ability to understand, compare, and visualize the spread of this virus. You can compare the spread in different countries, regions, and US states. You can sort the data by confirmed cases, deaths, and cases vs. the relative population.
How we came up with this
The P2 team has been thinking about how we can be helpful during this public health crisis. One of the things we've heard is that it is hard to get good county-level statistics on the pandemic's spread. A rural doctor recently told us, "I wish there was an app where I could know what's happening in my county." We also noticed that it’s difficult to understand the statistics in the context of how many tests have been administered.
So, our Analytics & BI Dashboard Team whipped up a county-level coronavirus statistics dashboard. Members of the public can then easily see the number of confirmed cases, tests, and deaths in their county. We’ve merged multiple datasets to visualize confirmed cases data next to testing data. You can also manipulate, sort, and stack the data in multiple ways.
The data is refreshed daily from reputable public data sources. The dashboard is in beta, and there will be some bugs, our team is working to improve the dashboard every day. If you have any feedback, we’d love to hear it!
If you know of anyone for whom this could be helpful -- such as doctors, nurses, educators, public health officials, journalists or friends, and family -- please feel free to share this.

Accuracy of Data
The exact number of COVID-19 illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths cannot be known for a variety of reasons. COVID-19 can cause mild illness, symptoms might not appear immediately, there are delays in reporting and testing, not everyone who is infected gets tested or seeks medical care, and there may be differences in how states and territories confirm numbers in their jurisdictions.
State and local public health departments are now testing and publicly reporting their cases. In the event of a discrepancy, the cases data reported by states should be considered the most up to date.
We sincerely hope that this initiative can help people understand COVID-19. If you would like us to help us expand our analysis or offer feedback, please contact us.
