Visier has made this data publicly available via GitHub under a creative commons license. This allows all organizations and individuals to have access to curated and daily refreshed COVID-19 dataset.

The dataset includes COVID-19 cases, fatalities, and recoveries with global coverage and  granularity for many countries. Through this aggregate dataset Visier provides details for more than 3,600 locations including 207 countries, self-governing regions, and dependencies. Detailed granularity is currently available for the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, India, Germany, China and Canada: including 200 first-level administrative divisions like province, region, or state; and 3,200 second level administrative divisions like county or health region.

This COVID-19 case data consolidates information from the best available sources, including many government health organizations as the primary sources. Additional transparency has been added with labelling for each data point, ensuring accuracy, usability, and trust of information. For more information on the data sources and data management process, see the Visier COVID-19 data sources.

Using the data management capabilities of Visier® Cloud, the enabling technology of Visier solutions, the COVID-19 case data is integrated, cleansed, prepared and validated on a daily basis. Within Visier People additional analytic capabilities include employee risk and location analysis, critical employee groups, employee cost, and profile information relevant for transition of work.
