More Data on Coronavirus as of April 3, 2020

Coronavirus Data Dashboards

An amazing colleague of mine in Europe has compiled an excellent list of public “dashboards” that display different views of Coronavirus data. I’m sharing some of them with you now.

All the data in my previous post is still valid. The following dashboards offer many different perspectives on the same data. You as the user can dig into a high list of options for how you want to filter and view that data.

Again, be careful how much time you spend looking at this stuff. Take a break when you need to.

These two are really amazing:

ESRI – All Hazards Consortium
Map including state level restrictions compilation:

These dashboards include data compiled and presented by Germany, Italy, Virginia (USA), and even some high school kid who compiled data from the CDC and WHO.

  1. – Robert Koch Institute (Germany)
  2. – Berlin Morgenpost Visualizaton (Germany)
  3. – Department of Civil Protection (Italy)
  4. – University of Virginia (Adds a time slider)
  5. – World Treatment Dashboard – free account required
  6. – World Covid Statistics Dashboard (numerous different graph views)
  7. – Covid Specific Country Statistics Graphs (editable by country)
  8. – Covid Live Dashboard (High School kid from Washington State using CDC and WHO data)

Coronavirus Guidance as of April 3, 2020

Guidance regarding behavior must be backed up by hard data. Otherwise, your actions may be a waste of time or actively damaging. My previous blog post offered hard data sources for COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) cases worldwide (COVID-19). This blog post offers some additional guidance based on data compiled by sources I recommend as the most reliable we have.

For those folks struggling with where to find reliable data, and the interpretation of data that provides us guidelines, I recommend the following: – The World Health Organization (WHO) is the international gold standard for health related information. – The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) offers American focused guidance. This page offers an FAQ. – FEMA now has a rumor control FAQ.

One aspect of this crisis I have yet to find reliable data on is regarding how much one needs to clean the groceries when bringing them into the house. This is unclear because we have little data regarding how long this coronavirus survives on surfaces.
Remember, this is “Novel Coronavirus” which is a new thing never seen before. Data on other coronaviruses shows that they can live on surfaces for as long as a few days. This is what the WHO has to say about the topic:
“It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).
If you think a surface may be infected, clean it with simple disinfectant to kill the virus and protect yourself and others. Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, or nose.”

Sophie’s 2020 Performance Schedule

This is my performance schedule for Commedia, Shakespeare, and improv for 2020. Subject to change, but this looks very likely to be it. If you want to join in my fun, please do! My email is at the bottom!

1) March 7 – Kingdom Arts and Sciences Festival –
The autocrat approved a 30 minute performance time for “Shakespeare in Germany” which is 90% i Firenzi people anyway, so I’m calling it “I Firenzi and Friends”. ANYONE WHO WANTS TO is welcome to join in and perform a Shakespeare monologue or short scene. If we need more stage time, we can probably get it, but that is not guaranteed since it needs review and approval by the Autocrat.

2) April 18 & 19 – Festival of Legends –
i Frienzi will again present fun and silliness of commedia at this local fantasy fest at Optimist Farm.

3) April 25 – Gawain and the Green Knight event  –
We decided, so far, to present the commedia show that we develop for Festival of Legends AND some Shakespeare scenes, AND a Who’s Line Doth It Be Anyway show! ALL OF IT! If you want to join in our fun, please let me know!

4) May 31 – North Carolina Museum of Art Ren Faire & Barony of Windmasters’ Hill DEMO –
Our own Isabella is running this big demo, and i Firenzi is expecting and expected to do something. What we’re doing is unclear. But it’s on my calendar.

5) June 27 – Known World Theater Arts Symposium
If you want to do COMMEDIA or SHAKESPEARE with me at this event, please let me know!

6) July 25-August 9 – PENNSIC!  Again, I’m running the Commedia All Stars, and it’s my 20th Anniversary of doing commedia. Yes, I’ve been studying, producing, promoting, teaching, and performing commedia for 20 years now. PLEASE let me know if you are coming to Pennsic and want to do commedia with me! (I can also give you suggestions on how to do commedia at Pennsic WITHOUT me if you want. 😉

7) September 26 – Midnight At The Oasis (MATO)
This is an old event The Canton of Nimenfeld put on at Optimist Farm that used to be fun years ago. Sir Alain is resurrecting it. Performing Arts is on their list, but specifics are TBD.

8) October 16-18 – War Of the Wings (WOW)
On Friday night, October 16, I hope to again do our traditional Naughty Show.

9) November 14 – Buckston Birthday
No idea what to do, but it’s local and friends run the event. It’s an opportunity for fun. I *think* this year’s theme is Alice In Wonderland. 🙂

10) December 5 – Unevent. No performing, but the business of drumming up support for performers is always done here, so I’ll be there.

I will be adding in some opportunities to do IMPROV COMEDY and audition new non-SCA folks for i Firenzi. My goals for 2020 include broadening my scope for playing myself and finding new friends who *genuinely* enjoy the same fun that I do.  If you want to come play with me, please let me know.
