When stuck in time between a tunnel’s light and each escape obscured by mortal dread from whence shall solace torch a flame so bright alleviating anxiousness in head?
Must nothing happen as all sit and watch such silent and invisible true foes encroach so quietly and cut each notch by stealing life breath underneath each nose
Uncertainty―uncertain though it seems― may be a sort of blessing so disguised to see beyond collective, fevered dreams and poems composed in fear soliloquized. By writing I will quell my anxious mind: immortalized anxiety enshrined!
# Import Libraries
import pandas as pd
# Magic Code for Inline Display
# in Jupyter Notebook (if you're using that)
# Create Dataframe from tables at URL for Iowa COVID-19 Testing
url = 'https://covidtracking.com/data/state/iowa/#history'
df = pd.read_html(url)
# There are multiple tables on the page,
# and they are saved in a list.
# Choose the 2nd table and rename to 'df'
df = df
# Set the type for the column 'Date' as a datetime type.
df['Date'] = pd.to_datetime(df['Date'])
# Set the newly typed "Date" column as the index.
df.index = df['Date']
# Create a new dataframe from the original with only
# the 'Pending','Negative', and 'Positive' columns
iowa_testing = df[['Pending','Negative','Positive']]
# Plot this new dataframe as a stacked bar graph
# Invert the axis so time moves forward.
