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.

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

ZOE COVID Symptom Study – Estimated Active UK and COVID-19 cases in Worthing

An alternative view of UK-wide estimated active COVID-19 cases in Worthing.

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.

Please note that this app is not the NHS COVID-19 contact-tracing app which launched on 24th September 2020.

To view data for Worthing and West Sussex, use the zoom and pan controls on the map to quickly show areas located on the south coast of England. Worthing is shown as the third shaded area to the left of Brighton. To see estimated cases in Worthing, Click on or touch the Worthing shaded area.

The ZOE COVID Symptom Study app (available for Android and IOS) is a major player in the fight against COVID-19 due to millions of UK users reporting on a daily basis.

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.

UK COVID-19 Overall Figures from MS Bing

The statistics below are from MS Bing and update automatically every 10 minutes. Bings uses the government’s COVID-19 Dashboard as its data source. Please note that the government figures are updated daily at approximately 16:00 hours.

This means that the figures below will not change until soon after the government updates its figures. On occasions we have seen updates to the COVID-19 Dashboard data appear late in the evening.

Apart from the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey, it is not possible to drill-down to other UK regional levels in the Bing statistics.

You can drag the map to other countries, some of which do show statistics at a regional level. The amount of circles per country indicate the amount of statistics available at a regional level.
