Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19 or 2019-nCoV) Cases Tracker
As of March 27, 2020 at 6pm EDT,
fetch_data.py's count of the United States cases is 697 greater than CSSE's. I checked individual states and created the following table:
|County||State||CSSE CSV||CSSE REST|
|Fairbanks North Star||Alaska||11||10|
Data from the REST API is supposed to be current because their web map directly uses this data for visualization, but some of those numbers are decreasing for some counties in the United States. I have no idea which version to trust more between their daily reports vs. REST data.
- Main data source: CSSE's time series data and REST API
- China: DXY
- South Korea: KCDC
- Italy: StatisticheCoronavirus
- Chile: Dr. Javier Concha's COVID-19 Chile repository
I found CSSE's data unreliable because they keep changing country names and adding duplicate entries with incomplete records. I am trying to clean up their data as much as possible to avoid double counting (e.g., as of March 17, Guam vs. Guam, US and French Guiana vs. French Guiana, France), so there can be some discrepancy between my cleaned up data and their original data.
- geodata.json: GeoJSON file with case locations and time series data
- data.csv: CSV file with the same information in a tabular format
