Coronavirus COVID-19 | Qlik Community Response


Updated: 30 March 2020

The main topic group on Qlik Community is here: https://community.qlik.com/t5/COVID-19/gp-p/covid-19-group

This post is to bring together people and resources in response to the global outbreak of Coronavirus, aka COVID-19, aka SARS-CoV-2. You'll find Qlik Sense screenshots and some live apps below.

I encourage people in the Qlik Community to share their insights using the data, without personal opinions as much as possible. There is enough hysteria in the news and this post isn't about that. It's more about what the data might tell us through visualizations and dashboards, and how they could inform decision-makers, policy-makers, healthcare professionals, patients and their families, and the general public.

InformationWeek had a good article on how analytics can help fight the virus: https://www.informationweek.com/big-data/big-data-analytics/fighting-the-coronavirus-with-analytics-...

This is my app.
Without selections;



And with Hubei excluded to show the difference (since it carries such weight compared to all other locations);cov19-except-Hubei.png

Update: Looking specifically at China and excluding Hubei, the number of reported active cases are really low so either the spread has been capped or the reporting is off track. Or does Hubei show what happens when the spread of the virus get out of hand and the number of affected people become so many that the health care system gets overwhelmed and can no longer treat the most affected?


Re: Coronavirus COVID-19 | Qlik Community Response

@Lucke_Hallbergson - nice work! I like the color-coded information. Very clean. Are you sharing this app anywhere publicly? If not, would you mind sharing the QVF and I could host it for you?


Re: Coronavirus COVID-19 | Qlik Community Response

This time I left the dashboard building to others and focused on getting latest summarised data extracts on a schedule to drive these dashboard. Here is my contribution - https://kabonline.net/2020/03/06/coronavirus-outbreak-data-feed/

Please do not forget to the mark the post if you find it useful or provides you the solutions 🙂

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19 | Qlik Community Response

Great post, amazing information here!

Has anyone seen data that gets a bit more granular for U.S.?  Wondering if anyone has seen data with county or zip code?  Looking to get insight into which regions of each US state are being impacted the most.


Re: Coronavirus COVID-19 | Qlik Community Response

This is a video of our Dashboard (visible only on our tenant at the moment) https://share.vidyard.com/watch/NCvXn4qg73fTU1eUgvRiEx? 






Re: Coronavirus COVID-19 | Qlik Community Response

Johns Hopkins CSSE was collecting county level statistics in the US, but after 2020-03-10 they stopped because it was too much to maintain as the impact spread. Additionally there were issues with double counting, etc.

Updated the article with more examples and some great blog posts on visualizing/mapping the coronavirus data, responsibly. Thanks to Kenneth Field from ESRI, Amanda Makulec from Data Visualization Society, and Megan Danielson & Marena Brinkhurst from Mapbox for the content!
