Dataset

Tabular Data

The tabular data files are located in dataset folder. The folder dataset/daily holds the daily updates in each country.

The metadata for the tabular data is found in .dataherb/metadata.yml.

Other Data

Some of the countries publish more than simple tabular data. We cache the files in documents folder.

Scrapers

The scripts that are being used to update the data are located in scripts folder. Most of the scripts require the utils.py module to run. Create a new environment and run pip install -r requirements.txt to install the requirements.

Workflows

The workflows that update the dataset are defined in .github/workflows. The python scripts are scheduled to run on GitHub Actions.

Notes

AT

Caveats:

  1. We started tracking the recovered population and the deaths on 2020-03-13.

BE

  1. Only PDF files of the records are downloaded.

DE

  1. For technical reasons, no data was transmitted from Hamburg on March 25th, 2020.

FR

  1. France stopped updating the case tables on the webpage on 2020-03-26. We went back to the PDF files.

NL

Caveats:

  1. NL doesn't publish the time of the data release. We use 00:00 of the day to denote the release time though it doesn't indicate the actual update time.

UK

England

  1. In the first few days of reporting (before 2020-03-11), data of England is not always a number. To solve this problem, we added two columns, cases_lower and cases_upper, to reflect the range of the number of cases.
  2. England switched to ArcGIS later. We are downloading the CSV file directly.

Wales

  1. Wales stopped publishing detailed data on 2020-03-17.

Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland does not publish detailed data.

IT

  1. The data source also provides the whole time-series data. Set the -f flag to true for scripts/download_it.py to redownload all dates.
