CoVid19 Data Sourses - and a Poem

Most authoritative source of data on Australian CoVid19 cases is the weekly National report here: http://www1.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/novel_coronavirus_2019_ncov_weekly_epidemiology_reports_australia_2020.htm

To date this report provides very little information about deaths and certainly not ages of each death (only 7 so far).

NSW Health latest report is here: http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/diseases/Pages/covid-19-latest.aspx#age

I have not found historical reports like this on their site.

A great presentation of stats for cases, recoveries and deaths for different countries is on http://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ but no sources are linked to latest data. The current (22 March) figure for Australia looks a bit high.

There are still no age specific reports of deaths other than the Chinese study referred to an earlier Findem news article 26 February. This a major statistical omission.

Finally, to lighten things up a bit, I was sent a 'To a Virus' poem by a Scottish friend written by Willie Sinclair - its brilliant! See it in my Songs and Poems section here http://www.findem.com.au/resources/resourcesarchives.php .
