As we continue to track the COVID-19 situation and assess its impact on financial markets, we wanted to share some of the resources we’re monitoring on a daily basis.  Useful data is scattered across the internet, so we look at a variety of sources to get a fuller picture of how various states and countries are handling the pandemic, particularly how case and death curves are trending.

We’ve also included a few historical articles that might be of interest to the budding amateur epidemiologists among us:

Disclaimer: Please note that while Coldstream believes these sources to be reliable, we cannot guarantee their accuracy, completeness, or timeliness.  Testing capacity to detect COVID cases and deaths varies greatly between regions, so case figures may not be directly comparable.  Methodologies also differ, such as whether “presumptive cases” are included and how causes of death are assigned by local authorities.  COVID data is frequently incomplete and figures for recent days are especially subject to revision.  For these reasons, we believe moving averages and trend lines are more useful than focusing on any specific data point.  CFA® and Chartered Financial Analyst® are registered trademarks owned by CFA Institute.
