@kkoenig - am I seeing it correctly that county level data only lists the number of confirmed cases, not deaths or recovered?  Is that what you see as well?

That's what I see as well, unfortunately!

Please go check out this amazing dataset.  They are doing it the old fashion way with brains and tenacity.

@klpenney_Raytheon Thank you for sharing! I see that they have the death details by county as well. That's so helpful!

I have requested data access but since it is for commercial purpose I am not sure how he will respond. Please let me/us know if you find a way in.

Hi @DavidW,

 

Love this - great work.

 

Is there a reason that you haven't set it up to run the 'git pull' as an event before the workflow runs in order to pull the latest data set automatically?

@LukeM I didn't want to assume that people were using git to retrieve the data. In the discussion forum, another user set up a Download tool instead to retrieve the files. I certainly can make a version of the workflow that handles the `git pull` automatically.

@DavidW I guess I just wanted to make people aware of the ability to create a batch file to run the command line script to perform the 'git pull' and then use the Events panel to trigger the batch file before the workflow starts.
