Resources:  

Georgia STEM is working closely with experts as we gather information from the CDC, the Georgia Department of Public Health, the WHO and Johns Hopkins.  We have developed some resources for you to use and distribute to your school faculty and staff.  We only utilize information from research-based primary sources, including the CDC, New England Journal of Medicine and WHO.  We do not pull information from secondary sources; therefore, you can share these resources knowing that the information is accurate and reliable. 

 

All information is provided in a factual manner and we strive to exhibit and project calm as we navigate these uncharted waters.  We do believe that it is important for our students to be educated about viruses (Georgia Standard of Excellence- Biology SB4c) and how the spread of these illnesses can be limited and contained using common-sense measures.

COVID-19 UPDATE

This post is updated and time-stamped as information is released and confirmed.  It acts as a timeline and also a repository for information about the virus.  


Mapping COVID-19 with GIS

Georgia STEM has created a GIS map specific to the state of Georgia.  This map also pulls data from CDC and Johns Hopkins to show an interactive display of the virus and news data points as cases are confirmed and deaths are reported.  Lots of good data here for discussion in math or science classes or even historical comparisons for history or social studies.  If you zoom in and hover over a specific data point and click it will show you how many are infected at that site, including deaths and recoveries. 

 

COVID-19 Math

This is a simple google sheet that is updated every few hours to show the current fatality rate worldwide, in the US and in Georgia.  It also shows the infection rate based on the situation report released by the WHO daily.
