Coronavirus (COVID-19): What the Data Tells Us

3/23/20: We have updated the dossier to include closer to real-time data, a new time-lapse chapter, and a more complete analysis of what the data is telling us. if you have downloaded the Chrome Hypercard extension, there is now a new COVID-19 card that will provide instant updates on a country's status.  View dossier.

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared coronavirus (COVID-19) a global health emergency as concerns grew around its potential spread to other countries, especially those with weaker healthcare systems.

At MicroStrategy, we have accessed coronavirus outbreak data provided by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University and created an interactive dossier that will be updated daily.

The dossier shows how many people have been infected, how many have recovered, and how many deaths have been caused by the virus by both geography and time. You can drill down to a specific country and see associated trends, or click on a day to take a look at outbreak statistics.

The dossier allows users to graphically view and understand the timeline of this outbreak and how it has been evolving since the WHO was informed of an outbreak of "pneumonia of unknown cause" detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China.

The dossier also contains informative statistics, latest news coverage, and visually represented infections/recovered/death rates so you can hover over any country or use context menu options to choose a country and see the changing situation.

The dossier contains multiple chapters and pages to breakdown the information by province level in China, city level in the United States, Australia, and Canada, and at the country level for the rest of the world. It was created to provide a visual and interactive snapshot of an important health emergency.

Take a look at the dossier and get real-time updates on the coronavirus!
