UPDATED 19th Jan 2021
We’ve been trying to keep up with the firehose of COVID research in order to visualise more infographics. But we can’t manage it. So here’s everything we’re reading. We hope to crystallise it all in visual form soon! (Sorry lots of New York Times – such great work)

UPDATE 18th Jan 2021
: Added new interactives: Country Comparer and COVID Hotspots Map (coded by Univers Labs, Design by Nueker, concept & creative direction: David McCandless)
: Updated Top Outbreak Countries interactive
: Updated Coronavirus Trajectories
: Added 33 essential reads
UPDATE 12th Jan 2021
: Added German and Spanish translations of Riskiest Activities
UPDATE 10th Nov
: Added Portuguese version of Riskiest Activies
UPDATE 1st Sep
: Average Disease Deaths per Day updated.
UPDATE 22nd Jul
: Average Disease Deaths per Day updated.
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.
UPDATE 22nd Jun
