Link below is an interactive map of Ontario schools with ACTIVE #COVID19 cases.

- Zooming out shows the number of regional schools with an active outbreak
- Hover/click icons for additional details

Link: rb.gy/pxmqyu
This is still working progress and I attend to add more features over the coming days, for example:

- Color coding icons by schools with active cases, no previous/current cases, and resolved cases.
- Add a searchable database
For anyone geo-mapping this data, please get in touch with me and I'd be happy to share my geolocation (e.g. latitude/longitude) for schools. This took considerable/coding and I would be happy to share this dataset.
TYPO: "Intend to add more features..."
Many thanks to @IacovosMichael for his helpful comments and suggestions on improving the initial version of the map.

Since the #cornavirus pandemic was called, countries used different strategies to handle #COVID19. In general, there are 3 ways to handling a pandemic:
1) Do nothing to slow the spread of infections
2) Global coordination efforts to crush the virus
3) Delay and vaccinate
Approach 1:
Governments and communities do nothing or very little to slow infections in the community (e.g. like Sweden). As a result, we see a surge in the number of cases. Without much time for researchers to study the virus, doctors will know little about treatments.
Approach 1 (cont)
As a result, we see hospitals reaching capacity and death rates rising due to infections *OR* healthcare system collapse (e.g Italy and some US states). Once most of the population has been infected, herd immunity kicks in and will starve the virus of hosts

Ontario introduced #SocialCircles allowing up to 10 ppl to interact, without #PhysicalDistancing. The number of ppl you interact with matters and here’s why you should limit yourself to one circle
In the clip, "higher risk of infection" means an infected person can spread the virus if they come in contact with susceptible members of their social circle. The longer an infected person goes undetected w/o testing/self-isolation, the ⬆️the risk for members of their circle.
The risk of COVID-19 infection is not the same for everyone in any given social network. The risk will vary depending on many factors, including the number and type of interactions with an infected person.
