The Pandemic Visualized

COVID-19 cases and deaths, worldwide: 

You can change the country being visualized at the bottom of the chart.

 

Total COVID-19 tests per 1000 people: 

Tests per 1000 people is a better way to visualize how much testing is being done relative to a country’s population. The goal is to maximize the percentage of the population that’s being tested, to increase the chances of catching potential COVID-19 cases. The country with the most overall tests doesn’t necessarily have the best testing rate- you have to normalize to population.

Is the curve bending? 

This chart shows the daily confirmed COVID-19 cases per country on a log scale. If a country is successfully slowing the spread of the virus, the curve for that country will begin to ‘bend.’ For the pandemic to end, every country has to bring the new daily cases down to zero.
