I’ll be publishing a weekly snapshot showing the number of cases of COVID-19 across the Caribbean.
Things to note:
- I define the Caribbean as member and associate member states of CARICOM.
- The focus is on confirmed cases only. However, confirmed cases are not all cases, just the ones that tested positive. Furthermore, testing rules and availability may vary by country.
- There are three data sources: World Health Organization Daily Situation Reports, John Hopkins COVID-19 Map, and Loop News COVID-19 Map/Table.
- The above sources are checked every Friday night with data being keyed into an Excel spreadsheet.
