Media Hack Collective (MHC) has focused on several national and local governance issues over the years including a regular review and comparison of the State of the Nation Addresses by the sitting president. Examples: What are the president’s priorities? (2021), Six State of the Nation Addresses and 10 years of President Zuma SONAs).
In March 2020 MHC launched the Coronavirus in South Africa dashboard, which is broken up into different sections. The dashboard tracks a broad range of data on Covid-19 in South Africa, including the national dashboard which details the country’s active cases, number of tests, hospital admissions, deaths and vaccinations.
There is also a provincial dashboard which breaks down the coronavirus according to the nine South African provinces, as well as district data. This tab includes visualisations of the provinces’ cases, deaths, recoveries and active cases. We also rank them from worst affected to least affected.
Most of the data collected for the dashboard is made publicly available here.
