Covid Dashboard

Published on Aug 18, 2020 by on

This is a covid Dashboard that was designed using Plotly Dash. The Dashboard runs on the address http://3.128.33.112:8080/

The Documentation for the Plotly Dash can be found here: https://dash.plotly.com/

The dashboard is added to a Docker container. The installation instruction for docker can be found here: https://docs.docker.com/get-docker/

Docker containers can be deployed onto AWS ECS. You can find a nice tutorial on the AWS ECS here: https://aws.amazon.com/getting-started/hands-on/deploy-docker-containers/

You can git clone the repo and run the dashboard locally. It will run on the address: http://127.0.0.1:8080/

The dashboard uses the data from https://covidtracking.com/.

The dashboard has three components: 1) A summary of covid metrics 2) Plots that show normal and cumulative count for new cases, death counts, number tested count and number hospitalized. 3) A clickable map of the US. Selecting a single stage updates the two plots between. The first plot is the number of new cases and the second is the number of deaths in the selected states.
