A year Later: Still COVID19 Cases and Deaths for Any Country

Just a small update to this post, which I first added here about a year ago, way back in 2020. I am a scientist in North America, who has lived and worked on both sides of the US/Canada border, and as a medical research professor, I felt it my duty to provide the public with access to numbers that they can trust. This data visualization lets you follow the progress of COVID19 in your own country and other countries, and visualize it over time. I have included some iFrame code to give you the ability to change the time frame and even the selection of countries you may be interested in. 

Currently, in addition to my eye research, I also manage a small local study in Oakland County, Michigan, to monitor the presence of antibodies to the COVID19 spike protein in persons. My students are finding that vaccines from Moderna, Pfizer and J&J, do well at producing antibodies in our test volunteers, including ourselves. We are all vaccinated at this point. So keep wearing a mask, get vaccinated, and think about the people who will not get harmed because you buffer them from this pandemic disease. :)

Here are some graphs that you can adjust to look at different timelines for cases of illness and deaths for any country. I embedded iFrame code in this posting to give you graphs that you can also adjust. Table and MAP views are also available. Book mark so you can return here as the data in these graphs will update automatically. 

You can click on the +Add country button to change the countries shown on the plot. At the bottom of the graphs, you can move the ends of the blue slider to change the range of dates. Tabs give you views of data in table or MAP formats.

This first graph shows the confirmed COVID19 cases in various countries:

This graph shows the total confirmed deaths per country from COVID19:

Would you like some other countries plotted here in active-graphs? If so, please post a request to me on twitter @kpmitton and ask. I would also be happy to help generate a graph for you with the data you wish to view. I use the data services of Our World in Data. You can too.
