Fox 19: UC students create COVID-19 Watcher
June 4, 2020
The COVID-19 Watcher, developed by two University of Cincinnati students, displays data from every county and 188 metropolitan areas in the country. Features of the dashboard include ranking of the worst affected areas and auto-generating plots that depict temporal changes in testing capacity, cases and deaths. The COVID-19 Watcher can provide the public with real-time updates of outbreaks in their area. The app pulls in data from the New York Times, which has been tracking COVID-19 cases since January, and merges it with sources from the U.S. Census to map cases for each county and metropolitan area.
