COVID-19 Daily Updates Report Development Walkthrough

PAUL TURLEY (Pragmatic Works) – COVID-19 Daily Updates Report Development Walkthrough

Paul, with the help of members of the Microsoft MVP program and his colleagues from Pragmatic Works, has developed a public Power BI report to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. The report contains daily updates from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) using data curated by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science & Engineering. Using the report, we can track the daily progression of confirmed cases, recovered cases and deaths by country. Where available, these metrics are also available state or province and US counties.

  • Some of the complexities & challenges encountered consuming & refreshing the dataset
  • Initial Power BI dataset & report published to the web
  • Project in GitHub to which the community are contributing
  • Template app published through the community partner program
  • How to install the app from AppSource
