Coronavirus in US in Charts and Maps — DataViz Weekly March 20th, 2020 by AnyChart Team

Coronavirus in the United States of America in data visualizations, charts and maps, in a special edition of DataViz Weekly COVID-19 in USAs the novel coronavirus pandemic is in full swing, COVID-19 is now by far the most topical issue on the global agenda. So it’s no surprise that the vast majority of the data visualization projects we’ve come across this week are about the outbreak. That’s why the new DataViz Weekly article is entirely devoted to the same subject — the coronavirus.

We are quite sure many of you have already seen some if not all of the best dashboards, charts, and trackers of the global COVID-19 outbreak from Johns Hopkins University, The New York Times, Financial Times, Business Insider, The Guardian, Bloomberg, and others. Awesome animated simulations from The Washington Post’s Harry Stevens, showing why epidemics like this spread exponentially and how social distancing could help to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases, have almost certainly came to your attention and does not need to be presented additionally.

Headquartered in the United States, we decided to find out more about what has been going on about COVID-19 in America. Join us on a review of four interesting (though sometimes a bit frightening) data graphics features created by top media outlets, which provide insight into where the U.S. stands — from the perspective of cases and tests (Politico), scenarios (TIME), and hospital bed capacity (The Upshot by NYT), as well as compared to the rest of the world (BuzzFeed News). Check out the special “COVID-19 in US” edition of DataViz Weekly on the AnyChart blog.
