This morning, as I do every morning, I opened WHO stuation report page, and found no new daily report. It looks like WHO have changed its situation report publish frequency from daily to weekly. Do I have to change my update frequency of README.md, and shiny app also to weekly?

Fortunately, by following the link to WHO COVID-19 Dashboard on the same page, I could find a csv file of daily data, which I have long hoped for. I can download it from Data Table tab. Its URL is https://covid19.who.int/WHO-COVID-19-global-data.csv.

I don’t know when it became available. Anyway, the days of scratching numbers from pdf files are over. Thank you, WHO.
