1/7 Each day #JohnsHopkins publishes *cumulative* counts of #COVID19 cases for each county in the USA. As a public service I wrote code to convert that cumulative count data into *daily* counts for all USA counties. #CovidData #Covid19Data
2/7 This daily count data is in one csv file per month. There is one set of files with daily *case* counts and another set of files with daily *death* counts. Anyone can download and use this data. The only limitation is no commercial use.
3/7 These files include a latitude longitude centroid for each county and will be easy to import into spreadsheet or #GIS software. Each night the count of new #COVID cases for the prior day is added to the current monthly csv file.

For the most part, asthma, hypertension, and diabetes are inequalities — differences that are a direct result of racism, poverty, disinvestment, and other structural barriers — not “pre-existing conditions.”

Most US cities have a 15-year gap in life expectancy. Neighborhoods that have seen these catastrophically-high premature death rates for decades, due to inequality, racism, & incarceration, are also likely to be impacted by #covid19 at 2-5 times the rate of affluent areas. #nnip Image
