COVID-19 Tracker

Build Codebase Support

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), also known as COVID and the coronavirus, is a contagious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The data dashboard has been created by the Frictionless Data team and it's open for contributing for anyone who is interested. The main COVID-19 data resources we use for this project are Our World in Data core data and Excess Mortality research.


The main three core metrics we track: total deaths, total cases, and all the vaccination shots taken (worldwide):



Here is a timeline of the worldwide deaths caused by the COVID-19 pandemic:

New Cases

The new cases data is less reliable as cases registration really depends on the testing volume and methodology:


The vaccination campaign had been started around January 2021; this chart shows all the shots taken:


Here is a summary of the key pandemic data:

Location Deaths Deaths/1M Cases Cases/1M Shots Shots/100
World 6948751 871.305 767726097 96265.328 13475760102 168.97
Location Deaths Deaths/1M Cases Cases/1M Shots Shots/100


The purpose of this site is to display analyzed COVID-19 data in a helpful way. On the homepage, you can find summary data for total counts of death, case numbers, and vaccinations from around the world. There are also separate pages displaying similar data but for specific world regions and countries, as well as displaying calculated data like excess mortality and rolling immunity. This site is build on the open source Frictionless Livemark tool, and all data collection information is freely shared on the data collection page. Additionally, all source code for the data visualisations can be found on the GitHub repository. Finally, this is a community project, and anyone is welcome to contribute!
