COVID-19 Apps Available in Power BI

11 May 2020

You cannot take a step outside your front door before the world reminds you of the COVID-19 pandemic. As healthcare providers and local governments work to slow the spread of the virus and ultimately save lives, it’s critical that these organisations are equipped with accurate information in a timely manner. To help these organisations and individuals stay informed, several of Microsoft’s Power BI partners have created template apps tracking the COVID-19 pandemic, e.g.

  • COVID-19 US tracking
  • COVID-19 daily cases
  • COVID-19 global cases.

These are now available in Power BI. After you download them, you can use them as is, personalise them or share them inside your organisation. All the following template apps connect to anonymous data sources.


The Power BI team has created a solution that provides a report of COVID-19 metrics that local governments, organisations or any other Power BI user can use to publish up-to-date information to their communities or for themselves.


For those of us who remember there are more countries in the world than the United States, this COVID-19 report, which was developed by Pragmatic Works, provides information on daily cases, recoveries and death rates by country and state / province from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and John Hopkins University.


With DataChant’s latest template app, you may analyse COVID-19 global cases in a daily refreshed report, which includes advanced time intelligence measures to offset all countries by the number of estimated active cases per capita since the first day that 100 cases were reported. You can also hit the play icon to see the animated progression over the last 30 days if you really want to scare (or reassure) yourself.
