Coverage period: Feb 15–May 25, 2020
The numbers show the percentage of change compared with the baseline, which is the median value, for the corresponding day of the week, during the 5 week period Jan 3–Feb 6, 2020.

On this page, we use the weekly average data with the aim of reduction of fluctuation.
This dashboard is developed and maintained by a team of student volunteers.
