Covid 19 Stats

The unfolding tragedy that is Covid 19 is being fought on many fronts, and data, statistics and mathematics are playing a strong supporting role, by helping to inform what is happening and allow the scientists and politicians make decisions and review the outcome of the policies that have enacted.

Much data is being made publically available, and I have been experimenting with a new tool I have found to display that data. Whilst not up there with some of the excellent graphs and infographics being produced by many sources, I’m quite pleased with what I have achieved. Later this term, I will be teaching (remotely) some of my students how to access the data and use various tools to visualise and interpret said data.

I needed somewhere to host my first couple of forays in this field, so here they are.
