Visualizing Coronavirus Disease by the Numbers


The coronavirus is fundamentally changing the world before our eyes.

Our goal at has always been to help people understand the economy. We do that by creating beautiful data visualizations that tell a story and help people make better decisions. In response to the coronavirus outbreak, we’re creating a new page to help people understand what’s really going on with the virus and the economy.

We will stick to the facts as we know them and avoid undue alarmism. We’ll always use reliable sources for our data. Yes, financial markets are in turmoil, entire countries are on lockdown and governments are struggling to formulate a coherent response. But our mission remains the same: to help our readers better understand the world even as it rapidly changes.
