In Part 1, I looked at the trends and did some visual analysis of the COVID-19 case status data for Ontario. This also required some rather involved data acquisition, as the information on COVID for Ontario was only available on a daily basis on the Ministry of Health’s official COVID page.
Since that time, finally the data has been made open and is now available on the Ontario Open Data page:
Status of cases in Ontario: https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/status-of-covid-19-cases-in-ontario
Confirmed Positive cases: https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/confirmed-positive-cases-of-covid-19-in-ontario
The second of these being data with important information like geographic and demographics that I lamented I could not locate previously.
So here for Part 2, we will dive into the confirmed cases data to see if there are any simple insights we can uncover of those positive cases of COVID in Ontario.
The same disclaimers from part 1 and then some also hold for this post (I am not an epidemiologist, interpretations of the data and opinions my own, my contain errors, I am not associated with Ministry of Health, etc.)
