COVID-19 Early Reporting

As the COVID-19 pandemic quickly emerged in Massachusetts in March 2020, we had the good fortune of having daily data released from the Department of Public Health. However, these data were not accessible in terms of interoperability to the general public. With a bit of basic data analysis and presentation, I was able to identify and communicate emerging trends in the COVID-19 pandemic in Massachusetts. I used publicly available data from Mass.gov. This research is not commissioned, and all errors are my own.
