COVID19 Data

All code is available on the associated repo

Our raw data set; direct download is compiled from available, open sources on the web – primarily provincial-level public health websites, and news reports. See README for URLs.

We update once per day.

This dataset contains daily reported number of positive/negative confirmed cases, presumptive cases, under investigation, and sources.

New addition: We are adding in Hospitalization, ICU, and Ventilator counts when they are avaliable.

Data before March 14, 2020 were recovered using the Way Back Machine; later data are gathered daily directly from the sites.
