Healthcare worker deaths in the US from novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Created a quick app based on news reports: https://jontheepi.shinyapps.io/hcwcoronavirus/.

  • Eight-related deaths so far. I hope not to have to update this. 
  • Healthcare workers will make up a disproportionate percent of cases and possibly also fatalities. 
  • The app was created using R, rshiny(package), and shinyapps.io for hosting
  • Map will be updated daily.
  • China only reported 5 deaths in healthcare workers. Healthcare personnel made up 4% of cases. Fifteen percent of healthcare workers that got ill were classified as severe cases. (https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2762130)
