The Travis County COVID-19 dashboard, which has been collecting data since early on in the pandemic crisis, just got a new look and new data that Austin Public Health said in a news release is "an effort to give the community a better picture of where Austin-Travis County currently stands in regards to COVID-19."
Data now includes, among other points:
- Demographic information on all confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths
- Confirmed cases and deaths reported each day since March 13
- Updated visuals that show the progression of cases and hospitalizations
The numbers of cases, deaths and hospitalizations will be updated daily, APH added in the release, while demographic data on hospitalizations and deaths will be updated weekly.
