In an effort to provide Marin County residents with a daily snapshot of the coronavirus pandemic’s size and impact, the county’s public health department has released a new website featuring maps, graphs and charts tracking the county’s coronavirus caseload.
The website includes cumulative information about the current number of cases in the county, a map of cases by location and the virus’s impact on different sections of the community—separated by age, gender and race/ethnicity. No personal or identifiable data is included in any of the published information.
“Lately there has been a lot of interest in the breakdown of cases by ethnicity,” said Bethany Dominik, a public health epidemiologist who worked on the platform. “This site is also going to help researchers who are collecting statistics to track the trends. One person who contacted us was putting an app together and wanted the raw data. We’re glad to be able to share it.”
The website—www.coronavirus.marinhhs.org/surveillance—will be updated every day by approximately 5pm. Some of the data is available for download in spreadsheet format.
