    Here is Rebekah Jones’ Florida COVID-19 stats page. She is the data scientist the state fired because she refused to fudge the data.

    Here’s COVID-19 data the government has withheld and local journalists should explore
    We all owe a “thank you” to Center for Public Integrity reporter Liz Essley Whyte, who has unearthed the data you need to report on the COVID-19 pandemic. Whyte writes:

    The newly disclosed data reveal that nearly 900 out of 938 metropolitan areas and more than 2,000 out of 3,270 counties qualify as “sustained hotspots,” meaning they have “potentially higher risk for experiencing healthcare resource limitations.” It also showed that more than a dozen metro areas and nearly 50 counties saw a 500% or greater increase in deaths from the previous week.

    Some of the information is similar to metrics the task force previously sent to governors in weekly reports. The documents, which the White House never made public, are now only available if states request them. The Center for Public Integrity has been collecting and publishing them.

    The dataset contains some information not previously available on any state or federal dashboard: For example, the Kansas City metro area, which crosses state lines, saw a 14% decrease in new cases in recent weeks but a 22% increase in deaths. It also has information on college students, poverty levels, test turnaround times and much more — allowing researchers and the public to do deep-dive analyses to better understand where to focus public health efforts.​

    Each state’s section is about 8 pages long in the current overall update, which is 414 pages. There are also separate reports for each state, which average 14 pages.
