Where to find the Johns Hopkins Covid-19 Datasets #Analytics

The data repository for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Visual Dashboard operated by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (JHU CSSE) is freely available at Github. JHU have become one of the Go To places on the Internet for information and data on Covid-19, and they have some wonderful dashboards and data visualizations. Lots of my data analytics students will naturally be interested doing projects on these types of data - looking for links, trends, patterns, relationships, and to build models to make predictions and classifications.

This is Data Democracy in action. Data gives us insight, and insight in turn gives us foresight, which we can act upon. I am absolutely convinced that data analysis is helping greatly in the fight against Covid-19. Together with scientific research into treating the disease and efforts to find a vaccine - data has a vital role to play.
