Ireland Covid19 Data

I was looking around a bit and could not really find any datasets behind the daily updates from the Irish government that get posted here. In particular i was thinking the break out tables of numbers by different dimensions might be of use for anyone looking to analyse the data.

So here is a python script to grab all press release links from the updates page, pull the html tables in pandas dataframes, do some ugly/gnarly data wrangling and save results into csv files here.

As an example i’ve stuck some of the headline figures and stats in a Tableau dashboard here.

Update1: This looks like a nice dashboard using similar data for Ireland.

Update2: IrishDataViz is a great twitter account with some analysis of the irish numbers.
