"Identifying populations at older ages and risk factors for COVID-19 transmission such as residential density and access to piped water and other amenities."
COVID-19 is an acute respiratory illness caused by a novel human coronavirus. It is a global pandemic unfolding in real-time, killing hundreds of thousands and affecting the lives of millions. The dashboard identifies populations at older ages, including those living alone, and includes risk factors for COVID-19 transmission such as residential density (household size and persons per room) and access to piped water and other amenities.
The pandemic poses significant challenges to all governments and represents a global threat to public health and the economy. Data on population risk factors can help governments prepare and respond to the pandemic and save lives. This dashboard provides decision-makers, experts, and the general public with access to information on populations at risk in order to target preparedness and response.
This is an Esri and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) resource. The data is taken directly from the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases Dashboard, though it is expected to be one day behind the dashboard’s live feeds to allow for quality assurance of the data.
