If you follow the news in Ireland you will know that every day there’s a press conference where Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer for the Department of Health, provides updates on the COVID19 situation.

This daily briefing was must-watch TV for many people during the early days of the crisis, as the numbers increased each day, and there was much uncertainty about how the situation would develop, but as we fast forward a few weeks we now live in the new normal, and it can be hard to find the time to watch the broadcast each day, an added difficulty is that the time of day varies.

Fortunately, the Health Protection Surveillance Centre operate a dashboard, which features maps and charts which summarise the current COVID19 data for Ireland, along with comparisons from around the world

A “dashboard” used to mean the part of a car’s interior where information was displayed, but in recent years in computer lingo it has come to mean a useful webpage which pulls together data from different sources
