Coronavirus Dashboard - Access Update

In the absence of an official Australian Coronavirus Dashboard using authoritative figures EMSINA put together a Coronavirus Dashboard last week using case numbers from the Department of Health's website.


Unfortunately, the official numbers reported by the DoH are not updated as frequently as users expect especially in comparison to the State health department and the media (i.e. the DoH data is consistently over 24 hours old). This discrepancy is leading to confusion and questions that EMSINA is not in a position to answer.


The Committee have assessed the risk and decided to suspend access to the Dashboard until a more regularly-updated authoritative source of case data can be accessed; noting that EMSINA will only support an authoritative government data source.


After working extensively with the DoH data our recommendation for the most update and authoritative figures is the state / territory health departments (a list is provided here).
