As you use COVID-19 data, it’s important to remember that, while the underlying data comes from trusted sources, it’s difficult to accurately estimate the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide because of the vastly different approaches to both testing and reporting. Also remember, even data visualisations based on accurate data can be misleading.

Mulesoft logo

Working with Mulesoft and Salesforce, we built an open and resilient flow of public COVID-19 data, made available as open APIs and within Tableau Public to be used in applications and new visualisations by anyone. The COVID-19 data platform ingests and aggregates data across public sources and curates them into standardised data models that can be reliably used to make data-driven decisions. IT teams will be able to move faster by making use of these APIs and developer resources instead of manually building them from scratch.
