I've had time to grok that 'our world in data' site. Typical University job.

In a back room of an ancient building, many statistical bookworms are generating data to go on some petabyte web site with loads of data about things you don't want to know about. Every day is a new day - new data to get processed under an unspeakable number of headings. It seems they have counted the average number of hairs on the backsides of those who have died from Covid-19. Shades of sesame street and it's vampire 'count' counting things…

Is anything easily available?

^ Not sure what you mean. I have used ourworldindata.org a few times now and find it very easy to use; I can pose a question like "which country had more confirmed deaths per capita, A or B?", and easily get an answer.

Haven't looked at their non-Covid data though.
