These data are scraped automatically from the University of Manchester website. Some very early data have been transcribed manually from an earlier update report. The case rates are calculated on the basis of a population size of 12,800 staff and 40,250 students, the official figures presented on the University website.
This page automatically updates and is unsupervised. It is not official and could be wrong - it is designed as a demonstration of data scraping and visualisation only; the source code is available under the “Code” tab.
