Nugget

An evolution in analysis

By

nugget, data, start up

Nugget is new tool that aims to revolutionise the way data is analysed, updated, tracked over time, and shared. The Nugget console can be acessed here. Charts can be made in just a few clicks, and can then be embeded into other sites. The resulting analysis is live and interactive - try toggling countries on and off in the graphs below.

Case numbers in the US are much higher, and so are best plotted on a chart of their own.

The relationship between deaths and cases is interesting, as the chart below shows. As testing rates have increased, the number of positive cases identified in people that are not seriously ill has rised, resulting a clear break in the relationship. Improved treatment may also be playing a role here.
