COVID-19 Arab Monitor (COV-AM)

The COVID-19 Arab Monitor is an initiative of the Global Health Institute at the American University of Beirut which aims at highlighting the response to COVID-19 across the twenty-two countries in the Arab Region. The Arab Region, which is home to a total population of 423 million, has been hit by the Coronavirus epidemic in escalating numbers.

The COVID-19 Arab Monitor will tackle the regional response to the virus across three strands:

  1. An up-to-date automated live feed of emerging cases in the region across the 22 states.
  2. COVID-19 visualizations exploring the disease dynamics in the Arab world
  3. A timeline of each state’s official government directives in the areas of COVID-19 response.
