Similarly to a recent question on lockdowns, wonder if there is a machine-readable dataset of covid-19 testing per country/state/region. Testing rate largely affects the official number of infected, and thus of apparent fatality (Case Fatality Ratio). This data would be needed to explain mortality differences between region/nations.

  • I use data.humdata.org, but, as below, there are many sources.
