Covid 19 Dashboard

Well being asked to stay home has given me time to play around with Power BI and continue to improve my skills.  This weekend I put together a couple reports to look at statistics around COVID 19.  In the next few days, I will post some additional blogs to explain how I built it out, but in the meantime, I wanted to share the dashboard.  The data is coming from Github and I have the dashboard set to refresh nightly, but of course, I have no control over the source data.
