Government’s COVID-19 Dashboard

From the Daily Update of the COVID-19 Dashboard (that’s the page that opens when you click-through), you can view information on Testing, Cases, Healthcare and Deaths. You can drill down to local information (for example Worthing), for Testing, Cases and Deaths.

The COVID-19 Dashboard statistics on the Government’s website are updated daily at approximately 16:00 hours. On some days these updates can occur later during the day.

West Sussex COVID-19 Dashboard

Information at the West Sussex COVID-19 Dashboard is produced by the West Sussex Public Health and Social Research Unit and is, according to their web page, updated daily Monday to Friday. However, we have noticed that the data is also updated on Saturdays and Sundays. As this is a regional dashboard, you may find it easier to drill down to Worthing data or to any West Sussex area that interests you.

Go to the West Sussex COVID-19 Dashboard

We find that the dashboard for tablets and smartphones works just fine on a desktop computer.

The ZOE COVID Symptom Study is run by researchers at King’s College London and collects data from users who have downloaded and are reporting symptoms through the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app.

How the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app works

Once a day the app reminds you to log your symptoms, if any and the data collected is shared on a daily basis with King’s College researchers and the NHS.

The reporting process takes less than a minute and occasionally a few additional lifestyle questions are asked and on that day the reporting process takes less than 2 minutes.

The app asks if you have ever had a COVID-19 test and if you answer No, you are asked to select from 2 options: “I feel physically normal’’ or ‘’I’m not feeling quite right.” That’s it – your report is complete.

If you report that you have had a COVID-19 test, the app will ask you for further details including the result. If you report a positive test, this will be added to the daily total for Worthing and the UK.

When you subsequently test negative for COVID-19 in Worthing and report this in the app, the number of local COVID-19 Cases and UK daily total will adjust (on the next update of the COVID Symptom Study website and app), to show your contribution.

Download the app now and join the research. Your contribution will be invaluable and help win the fight against coronavirus / COVID-19.
