An online data visualization tool has just been released that allows users to explore the COVID-19 projections being released weekly by Jeff Shaman’s lab at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. These data have been powering Columbia’s interactive online mapping tool that shows projected numbers for severe COVID-19 disease compared to the supply of available critical care beds under a variety of scenarios. The new data visualization tool allows users to see daily projected estimates of new cases, newly infected individuals and available critical care beds under a variety of scenarios for states and counties in the U.S. The methods used to make these estimates are described here.
This data visualization tool was created by Tonguc Yaman, a doctoral student in the Department of Epidemiology, using Shiny R Server.
