Essential Data Visualizations of Coronavirus Outbreak
While you are doing your civic duty to slow down the spread of coronavirus by staying home as much as possible, you can monitor the spread via these helpful/chilling data visualization sites:
World Cases of Coronavirus (via Johns Hopkins):
National Cases of Coronavirus (via New York Times):
Humanistic GIS Lab at University of Washington – Seattle:
https://hgis.uw.edu/virus/ (helpful charts showing state-level increases over time)
Animation Showing the Global Coronavirus Spread:
This last site, which animates global cases over time, demonstrates how interconnected our world is and how this makes it impossible to ignore what’s happening on the other side of the earth. It shows the cost of uncoordinated action and poor planning in the face of impending pandemic and how quickly disease can spread across a continent. Current efforts will slow down the spread significantly, but for areas that are already highly infected (Washington, New York, etc.) the spread will exhibit exponential growth for a number days, as testing catches up with cases and delayed symptoms of infection begin to manifest.
