COVID-19 TRACKING IN THE ARCTIC
ARCTICenter COVID-19 tracker provides daily updates on COVID-19 cases and deaths in the Arctic using various online sources. The dashboard presents the data on confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths from the beginning of the pandemic for 52 subnational political units on the subnational and aggregated “national” regions: Alaska, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Northern Canada, Northern Norway, Northern Russia, and Northern Sweden. One could view the most recent data or the historical data for each day of the pandemic.
COVID-19 REPORTING CARD
COVID-19 Reporting Card system provides a daily updated summarized high-level overview of the statistics on the COVID-19 development in the Arctic. The reporting card provides information about the total confirmed cases, deaths, death rate per 100 000 cases, and a number of cases and deaths added per the last 24 hours. The statistics on the number of cases and incidence rates summarized by the country. One may view the reporting card for any available date, download the current report as PDF, and subscribe to receive the most recent version of the reporting card to email daily, three times per week, or once per week.
ARCTIC COMMUNITIES AND COVID-19
Arctic is home to diverse populations including Indigenous communities. Arctic residents are the most knowledgeable about the COVID-19 situation on the ground. Community testimonies (video, audio, and written testimonies by community members, pictures, art, etc). are gathered to gain a better understanding of how COVID-19 is mitigated, which measures have shown to be successful and which have not, which lessons from the past pandemics is Arctic applying and what is Arctic learning from this experience. Knowledge holders from remote and urban communities are virtually interviewed on their experiences in relation to the COVID-19 situation, traditional teachings about health and epidemics, and lessons that could be applied to serve the society at large. The site also contains COVID-19 learning materials on selected Arctic Indigenous languages.
VULNERABILITY & RESILIENCE INDICES FOR THE ARCTIC
Socioeconomic, Demographics, Housing, and Health factors, among others, are key to understanding the community’s susceptibility as well as resiliency to the negative impact of a pandemic like COVID-19. ARCTICenter-UNI collects each Arctic region’s societal data and develops the vulnerability and resiliency indices for the regions. A combined assessment of both indices helps to identify high vulnerability and low resilience regions that could be severely impacted by the COVID-19 or a future pandemic. This page contains the visual representations of both indices by Arctic regions.
COVID19 DATA ACCESS WEB API
COVID-19 Data Access Web API provides open access to the collected data on the COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths in the Arctic as well as the access to the Google Mobility data on the Arctic. The data provided in a JSON format to use in the automated systems.
