Sources of Data
The following are amazing sources of the data used on this site.
The list here will be quite short because we stuck to a very small set of excellent resources to provide the charts, tables, and other stats shown within this site.
First of all, a big thanks go out to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at John Hopkins University (JHU) for creating an open data feed (API) combining data sources from “WHO, CDC, ECDC, NHC, DXY, 1point3acres, Worldometers.info, BNO, state and national government health departments, and local media reports.”
In addition, we have gathered data from:
- Canada.ca’s Epidemiological Summary of COVID-19 Cases in Canada
- The BC Center for Disease Control
- CTV News – Tracking every case of COVID-19 in Canada
WAIVER: we do not guarantee the data provided will always be accurate. This site has been designed for informational and educational purposes as a public service to our fellow Canadians and our cousins in the USA.
Other Great Sources of COVID-19 Data

- HealthMap: Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19): This map offers a colourful animated portrayal of global viral transmission.
