Thank you for visiting

This site brings together fragments of information and data that may be technically but not always practically available to the Australian public, and presents them without editorialising or projections.

It is not an authoritative or official source of epidemiological data. Rather, it captures the announcements and representations made to the Australian public with the goal of surfacing those that may elude attention, and distilling those that inundate us.

This website is independent and voluntarily maintained. Donations from the public are 100% responsible for the site's ability to continue and expand.

From September 2020, all donations go to Fairfacts Data - a not-for-profit company that was founded to provide more transparency and formality for donors to Learn more about Fairfacts Data here.
