Our society has entered an unprecedented time with the evolution of Coronavirus and its everlasting effects. In such uncertain times, it is important to stay up to date on new trends and patterns surrounding Coronavirus, as new information influences our daily decisions such as going to the grocery store or going for a walk.
One way to do this is by integrating analysis into applications utilizing data scraped from credible sources, such as the CDC website. Doing this draws in and enables users to make informed decisions based on current and updated statistics. Additionally, scraping data is necessary for analyzing Coronavirus trends because things are changing every day. Even the most up to date dataset would not be good tomorrow because that data is static. By creating a program that scrapes data daily, and utilizing that information to draw conclusions, you are certain to obtain and provide the most accurate statistics to your users.
Here is one way of providing updated statistics on Coronavirus trends. This workbook allows users to not only see the spread of Coronavirus on a national level, but on a state and county level as well. This data provides users with information directly related to themselves that they can use to make informed decisions. Feel free to explore the interactive workbook below.
