Fighting the Coronavirus Pandemic with SAS Visual Analytics Tracking Report

The WHO (World Health Organization) has declared the coronavirus a global pandemic. Doctors and Scientists are attempting to develop vaccines and treatments as quickly as possible to fight back with this pandemic. To fight back with covid- 19 and support healthcare researchers SAS has created a report that depicts the status, location, spread and trend analysis of the coronavirus. With novel- coronavirus permeating the world, governments and the general public are using SAS Visual Analytics to track the outbreak. The better we can track the virus, the better we can fight with this pandemic.

With SAS Visual Analytics coronavirus report, we can check regularly, how covid-19 is progressing, we can find out the number of new covid-19 cases within the last 10 days and see how the virus infection rates, recovery rates, and fatality rates. We can discover where the virus has migrated and compared epicenter China with the rest of the world. We can analyze the substantiated cases to understand how the recovery rate is transmuting over time.

Explore the SAS Visual Analytics coronavirus report using dashboard:

Utilizing a dashboard view, we can easily see an overview of the COVID-19 disease outbreak based on data updated daily, including the number of confirmed new cases, recovered cases and deaths from the virus filtered by geographic location. By utilizing a time series bar chart, we can easily compare the confirmed cases to recoveries and deaths and cases status by reporting time. We can also track the top five impacted countries by new cases in the last ten days in a stacked bar chart. The Locations Tab of the report reveals global and country-specific coronavirus data. It’s been many weeks since the first case of the new coronavirus was reported in China and the outbreak has spread across the globe. By adding a layer of geospatial data from Esri’s GIS mapping software, we’re able to explore an interactive view of the spread of coronavirus across China and into other countries. With SAS Visual Analytics, we can see a time-series animation that demonstrates the spread of the virus across the globe. Play the animation to optically discern the spread within China, as well as spread and astringency across the globe. 

Apart from SAS Visual Analytics technology, healthcare researches and scientists are utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), data science, data analytics & social media to track and fight the global pandemic. Robots are being deployed in hospitals to help with the influx of coronavirus patients. Local authorities are utilizing data analytics to locate anyone who might have been in contact with infected persons. Social media giants like Facebook, Google, Twitter & YouTube are utilizing their homepages and news feed to direct users to the World Health Organization and Government sites for education and information. All these advanced technologies are being employed to help and make doctors and governments more efficient and better equipped to fight this pandemic covid-19.
