F.A.Q

Me! I’m John, a 26-year-old student and Cat lover at the University of the Highlands and Islands. I started tracking the Coronavirus (COVID-19) data in a spreadsheet out of interest, which eventually led to me making this page. 

Rather than buying a new domain to host it, I just added it to my ‘Travelling Tabby’ website. This is a travel blog, and has absolutely nothing to do with the Coronavirus. But still, feel free to look around if you want! (although there isn’t much on the blog, as most of my free time since the start of 2020 has been spent on this page)

If you need to contact me, you can use the contact form on this page, or email me at [email protected]. I will respond when I can, but I’m quite busy right now and get a lot of emails, so replies may take a while!

Loads! Here are some of them:

Scotland Coronavirus Tracker – Another page by me, keeping track of more Scotland specific data

Worldometers – Worldwide Data in an easy table format

WHO – Worldwide Data with an attractive design

Our World in Data – A large website with heaps of data on the pandemic across the world

NYT – USA Data

Public Health Scotland – The official Scottish dashboard, with some additional figures on there 

Scot Gov Impact Dashboard – An interesting dashboard looking at the effects of the pandemic throughout Scotland (indirect health impacts, economic impacts, societal impacts, etc)

Public Health Wales – The official Welsh dashboard, with some additional figures on there 

CoronavirusCymru – An easy to read website covering all of the Welsh figures 

Portal Covid-19 Cymru – Another Welsh dashboard, providing some additional figures (including very local area figures)

Department of Health – The official Northern Ireland dashboard, with some additional figures on there (a separate page for Northern Irelands vaccine figures is here)

UK Government – The official UK dashboard, with some additional figures on there (their interactive map here is especially nice, and it allows you to see very local English figures)

Covidvax.live – Worldwide vaccine tracker in real-time

Covid-19 Risk – A neat website that lets you calculate the level of risk involved in attending an event in your area, based on recent case rates

Yeah! I routinely post different types of charts and comparisons on Twitter!

Also, here is a link to the spreadsheet I useFeel free to download a copy. It is a bit of a mess, but it could be useful if you were looking for some raw data. 

Here is a list of all the official pages involving Coronavirus figures for the UK (that I know of). If you know of anymore which you think should be included, please let me know!

 

UK / England

UK Gov – A page looking at the UK covid wide data. It includes a ton of information on cases, deaths, testing hospitalizations, and vaccinations

UK Gov Weekly R Number – A page that provides the most recent R number and growth rate for England and the English regions 

ONS Weekly Infection Survey – A weekly report that looks at covid rates throughout the UK, and estimates the total number of people who currently have the virus. 

ONS Weekly Death Reports – Another weekly report looking at all deaths throughout the UK, with covid-specific deaths by the alternative death count included. Additional detailed figures are included for England and Wales, covering deaths by location, excess deaths, and more. (for the Scotland/N. Ireland version of this, look for the NRS and NISRA reports)

NHS England – Detailed figures for English hospital activity, deaths, and vaccinations

 

Scotland

ScotGov – Daily headline figures on cases, deaths, testing, hospital occupancy, and vaccinations 

PHS Dashboard – Daily figures going into the above in more detail, including local figures, demographics, and detailed vaccination figures 

NRS Weekly Death Report – A weekly report looking at deaths by an alternative death count. Also includes extra information, like excess deaths, location of death, more detailed ages of death. Once a month a very detailed report comes out, looking at factors such as deprivation, pre existing conditions, and so forth.

PHS Weekly Report – A weekly report looking at a whole range of things, including lateral flow tests, cases in children, contact tracing, quarantining stats, lateral flow tests, community testing, and cases by profession.

PHS Weekly Dashboard – A dashboard that is updated once a week, consisting of data included in the PHS weekly report above. 

PHS Wider Impacts Dashboard – A dashboard looking at a range of general health factors and how the pandemic has impacted them (primarily through comparisons to previous years). Such as total hospital appointments, A&E attendances, cancer diagnoses, and much more.

PHS Education Dashboard – A weekly dashboard looking at cases, testing, and hospital admissions in children and those working in the education sector. 

ScotGov Impact Dashboard – A weekly dashboard looking at covids impact throughout society. Includes stuff like public opinion polls, school attendance, crime rates, unemployment rate, and more.

Sorry!

One issue might be that you’re using Firefox. This browser seems to break the page for a lot of people, and I have no idea what is causing it. My only suggestion would be to try viewing the page on another browser, as it just seems to be Firefox which has issues, on a range of devices.

If things in general aren’t updating, then it might just be that the page your browser is showing you hasn’t updated to show the most recent version. This seems to be an issue for only some people, for whatever reason. But if you view the page in private/incognito mode, then the issue should go away.

It’s a WordPress site, built with Elementor. That covers most of the page, but all the graphs/charts/tables are embeds from a range of different places! 

These are Datawrapper, Flourish, and Everviz. The Datawrapper and Flourish charts will mention their name in the footer, and if there’s no mention, it is an Everviz chart. Oh, and the non Datawrapper maps are made with MapSVG!

I’d be happy to answer any other questions about it, but it is quite simple. I’m not really any good at programming/automation, and I’m new to all of this, so it is mostly just a lot of copying/pasting to get the website updated daily.  

Additional Information / Clarifications

Here are some general notes on the local data on this page, and the data tables specifically. 

Firstly, no death data is available for any of the Welsh local authorities. They do have data by the other death measurement (deaths where the virus is mentioned on the death certificate), but not by the measurement on this page (deaths within 28 days of a positive test). You can see the data for the other measurement on the additional death data page here

Secondly, no vaccination data is available for any of the Welsh or Northern Ireland local authorities. Both nations do provide some regional figures, just not in the same format as the English/Scottish ones, on a daily basis. 

Thirdly, the population figures used to calculate vaccination coverage on this page are based on the ONS population estimates here. On the official UK government dashboard, the population figures used for the English areas is from the National Immunisation Management Service database, so the coverage figures there may be a little different than the ones on here. I am using the ONS figures for the English areas to allow for consistency and fair comparisons to be made between the English and Scottish regions. 

In the data tables, you can filter the data in a number of ways. First, you can select the column heading of any column to sort it by that column. Second, you can use the search bar to find a specific area, or multiple areas. E.g, you can search for ‘Glasgow Edinburgh Liverpool Manchester’ to compare those 4 cities. 

Searching for ‘Nation’ will just show the four nations, and searching for ‘Region’ will just show the large English regions. Searching for ‘Scotland’ will just show the Scottish local authorities, and searching for ‘Scotland Wales’ will just show the Scottish and Welsh ones. You can do similar searches for English regions, just be careful not to use any spaces. E.g, search for ‘NorthWest’ or ‘EastEngland’ or ‘YorkshireHumber’, etc. 

As for the data itself, there is just a whole bunch of stuff in there, especially in the detailed table. It is mostly self-explanatory, but let me know if there is anything else you would like to see in there. 

Here are some general notes about the vaccination data on the UK Coronavirus Tracker pages.

Firstly, no vaccination data is available for any of the Welsh or Northern Ireland local authorities. Both nations do provide some regional figures, just not in the same format as the English/Scottish ones, and not on a daily basis. 

Secondly, the population figures used to calculate vaccination coverage on this page are based on the ONS population estimates here. On the official UK government dashboard, the population figures used for the English regions and local authorities are from the National Immunisation Management Service Database, so the coverage figures there may be a little different than the ones on here. I am using the ONS figures for the English areas to allow for consistency and fair comparisons to be made between the English and Scottish regions. 

Thirdly, the ‘adult’ population is based on those 18 and older. Vaccinations are being administered to 16 and 17 year olds in certain priority groups, and over 10% of that age group have had their first dose. These vaccinations will still be included in the total vaccination figures, so the actual percentage of the 18+ population vaccinated will be slightly lower than what the figures say. 

Why don’t I just show the adult coverage as those over 16? Well, I did that before, but the official pages don’t do it that way, so I recently decided to switch to show coverage in the 18+ population instead, to keep in line with the official figures. 

It should be noted that the Scottish local authority figures will not include 16/17 year old vaccinations in them. It is not clear whether the English regions do this, but I don’t think they do. This means the English figures may be a little ‘inflated’ (by 1-2%) in comparison to the Scottish ones, as they will include 16/17 year old vaccinations in them while the Scottish ones will not. However, the Scottish national figure will include 16/17 year old vaccinations in them. On my Scotland Coronavirus Tracker page, these 16/17 year old vaccinations are not included in the national adult (18+) vaccination coverage, which is why the figures on this page and that page may be a tiny bit different. Meaning the comparisons between Scotland and England (or the large English regions) as a whole will be fair and equal.   

Most of that isn’t very important, but hopefully it answered any questions anyone had. But feel free to get in touch if you had any other questions!

Sorry for any confusion with this! With data coming in from so many sources, with varying definitions, and always being backdated and changed, it’s hard to keep on top of. If there are any large issues for the day, I’ll put a little heading banner at the top of the page just to make people aware of it. 

I’ll also list a few common ‘errors’ people spot below. But if you see something else, feel free to let me know! It could be an error I’ve not spotted, or it could just be a silly type. 

The local authority/regional figures will rarely ever sum up to match the national total. This is a result of missing location data, and numbers constantly being adjusted. This is especially true for deaths in England at a regional level, which normally do not even come close to matching the national figure (either by being well above or well below it). 

The 7-day increases on this page are based on specimen date, and exclude the 5 most recent days. On the Scotland page they’re also based on specimen date, but only exclude the 3 most recent days, so the 7-day figures won’t match up between the two pages. This is done to keep in line with the official figures being released from PHS and the UK Gov. The exception to this is with the vaccination data, which is based on reporting date. 

UK Gov Dashboard – Nearly all of the data comes from here. If it isn’t mentioned elsewhere below, then it will come from here.

Our World In Data – Any international, non-UK data, will come from here. 

Public Health Scotland – Vaccination data for Scottish local authorities.

UK Gov R Number – The current R numbers for England, and all English regions. Also, here are the separate sources for Scotland // Wales // Northern Ireland

ONS Weekly Death Report – All of the UK wide, English, and Welsh data on the additional death page. Also, here are the separate additional death sources for Scotland (NRS) and Northern Ireland (NISRA)

ONS Population Estimate – Population estimates for the UK, and also all of the extra stuff included in the detailed table on the local page (land size, population density, median age, etc).

I think that covers all of it! A lot of the figures on the page aren’t included in these sources, as I just work it out myself (stuff like the percentage change from last week). But if you need help finding anything else, just send me a message I’d be happy to help!

I aim to update this page every day, for around 6pm. Although unfortunately this isn’t always possible due to data not being released on time, or something else in my life taking priority. 

But it is updated by 6pm or shortly after most days! If a delay or more than 10-15 minutes is expected, I will put out a tweet to let people know. 

On public holidays, the amount of data being released can vary, so the page will only be partially updated, or potentially not updated at all. I’ll include a header banner on this page to let people know when/if that is occurring.

But in general, here are things to be aware of each day: 

Monday: No hospital data is updated

Tuesday: The additional death data page is updated, and the hospital data is updated again

Wednesday: Updated as normal

Thursday: Updated as normal

Friday: The R numbers are updated

Saturday: No Welsh data is updated

Sunday: No hospital data is updated
