UPDATE 22nd Jul

UPDATE 15th Jul
Added risk chart for Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) people who are more at risk of deaths from Coronavirus according to a study of 33,000+ deaths in the UK. (Data)
In the US, black and Latino people are 3x more likely to be *infected* by Coronavirus (according to a new analysis of 640,000 infections by the NYTimes – who sued the CDC to get the data). Multiple factors are at play. BAME populations may:
: have front-line jobs that keep them working from home, increasing exposure
: rely on public transportation
: live in cramped apartments or multigenerational homes
: have cultural and language barriers in accessing information & services
: experience pressure to keep working or quickly return to work, even in risky settings.
Higher exposure leads to higher infection rates which, in turn, can lead to a higher death rates.
This combined with a greater prevalence of underlying health problems among BAME populations (diabetes, obesity etc) goes some way to explain some of these race & ethnicity disparities.
But, even when these are filtered out, there’s still a pronounced imbalance. We don’t fully know why yet.
UPDATE 2nd Jul
: NEW Corona’s Riskiest Activities graphic. We collated & visualised the advice & professional opinions from over 500 epidemiologists & health experts as quoted in various media articles. (see the data). Primary source: NY Times: When 511 Epidemiologists Expect to Fly, Hug and Do 18 Other Everyday Activities Again plus additional epidemiological opinions from articles by Reuters, NPR and SF Gate.
METHODOLOGY: We extrapolated and graded the NY Times data into a 10 point scale. Then weighted and adjusted it according to any risk variance seen in the other articles. Where there was disagreement over a particular activity, we deferred to the NYT Times data or left the activity as ‘UNCLEAR’ in our datasheet. Disagreements & variance between ratings left some blurriness around the risk levels we’ve apportioned. i.e. it’s not a hard scale but a general one. We’ve added text captions to qualify this where possible. See the data for more.
