Launch of the COVID-19 Data Portal
On Friday, SDSN launched a new COVID-19 Data Portal! It is available at https://data.covid19commission.org/
Our COVID-19 database contains 3.5 million data points and 121 indicators on the pandemic, covering 216 countries over a period of 287 days (and counting!). The database is updated daily from Monday to Friday. The data portal currently features six interactive maps on transmission rate, new cases, deaths, ERR, and positive test rate — and more coming shortly.
The data portal was developed under the direction and guidance of Professor Jeffrey Sachs and Guillaume Lafortune for the Lancet Commission on COVID-19. SDSN is hosting the secretariat of the commission, together with the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University.
