ASU publishes COVID-19 data website

ASU’s Biodesign Institute has published a website that displays user-friendly graphs and visualizations of the spread of COVID-19 in Arizona and across the United States. “The idea behind the website… is to get data out there so people can look at it and they can follow trends,” said Joshua LaBaer, executive director of ASU’s Biodesign Institute.

In addition, ASU researchers have published a model projecting healthcare demand in Arizona due to COVID-19. The model can be viewed in preprint form at medRxiv. “I think (the model) helps us to understand where we are, so that we can think about where we want to go next,” said mathematical epidemiologist Tim Lant, one of the model’s authors.
