What does it do?

This repo is for analysis on the corona virus / covid-19 that will extract the latest data and generate reports. This repo will be updated daily

  • Creates a time series dataset
  • Creates a daily stats dataset
  • Generates a number of visualizations
  • You can also filter reports for a given country
  • Generates an excel report including all of the above
  • All results are saved to the output reports folder

To-do list


  • You may have noticed that here are some discrepancies in the JHU data.
  • These discrepancies include rows for countries missing for some sheets, misspelling of country names and countries being named differently (South Korea, Republic of Korea for example)
  • I am doing my best to update the preprocessing code to fix these problems. Please be patient and I will release the newest version of covidify ASAP
