    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This release adds support for data sets from John Hopkins University and the Google open data project. Both of these sources aggregate a range of data at national and subnational levels. It also contains a range of small fixes and improvements to documentation. Finally, this release adds optional data processing which will be extended in future releases (contributions warmly welcomed).&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Thanks to @joseph-palmer, @RichardMN, and @kathsherratt for contributions towards this release.&lt;/p&gt;
New features
&lt;ul&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Support for data provided by John Hopkins University (by @joseph-palmer).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Support for data provided by Google COVID-19 open data project (by @joseph-palmer).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Added a &lt;code&gt;available_regions&lt;/code&gt; method for all classes that shows level 1 regions with data available for the region of interest. This is of particular use when combined with the JHU or Google datasets where processing a large number of regions that are not required can take some time. &lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Adds support for JHU or Google data to &lt;code&gt;get_national_data()&lt;/code&gt;. This may also now be used to access lower level data from these sources  but it may be better to instead use the classes directly or via &lt;code&gt;initialise_dataclass()&lt;/code&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;
Other changes
&lt;ul&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The optional downloading of NHS region data in the &lt;code&gt;UK()&lt;/code&gt; has been improved to include both the dynamic data previously supported and the archive document now produced (by @kathsherratt).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The examples for the &lt;code&gt;UK()&lt;/code&gt; class have been expanded to better showcase the package functionality.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The documentation and examples for &lt;code&gt;get_regional_data()&lt;/code&gt;, &lt;code&gt;get_national_data()&lt;/code&gt;, and &lt;code&gt;get_available_datasets()&lt;/code&gt; has been expanded with a focus on increasing the visibility of the underlying package structure.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The documentation and examples for &lt;code&gt;initialise_dataclass()&lt;/code&gt;, &lt;code&gt;DataClass()&lt;/code&gt;, and &lt;code&gt;CountryDataClass()&lt;/code&gt; has been expanded and improved.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Improvements to the linking of documentation for related functions and classes.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Improvements to the documentation for contributors (by @RichardMN).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Improvements to the &lt;code&gt;pkgdown&lt;/code&gt; documentation to organise packages into appropriate subcategories.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;</description>
