These plots are generated using the curated data provided below.
Dashed red line represents current ICU capacity allocated to COVID, this line will adjust when we have more details on expansions. This line does not represent the general ICU capacity (which includes all non-COVID cases). The current ICU capacities used in the plot can be found in the capacity data set.
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.
