In today's column, I tried to answer the question: "How much worse can the #coronavirus pandemic get?" So, for data geeks like me, I'm going to post a thread of stories and graphs with projections. theglobeandmail.com/canada/article…
How Much Worse the #Coronavirus Could Get - features some great interactive charts and examines how long the #pandemic could last nytimes.com/interactive/20… via @nytimes
Unsurprisingly, Our World In Data has some of the best data on #coronavirus, like this chart that shows how long it took for cases numbers to double. (in Canada it's four days) ourworldindata.org/coronavirus
This chart looks at the increase in #coronavirus infections since the first case. (Canada's first case was Jan 25, today it has 200 cases.) hgis.uw.edu/virus/
The CDC projects that 160 million to 214 million people in the U.S. could be infected with #coronavirus and between 200,000 and 1.7 million could die. (for some reason there are not charts with this data-rich @nytimes story) nytimes.com/2020/03/13/us/… #covid19
The best source for tracking current data on #coronavirus spread around the world is the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center (you can even get province-by-province numbers for Canada) coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html
The Exponential Power of Now. This chart shows how intervening early has a dramatic impact on how #coronavirus cases spread nyti.ms/3aRzTnO via @nytimes
"There are dozens of countries with exponential growth rates...most of them are Western." This @tomaspueyo piece features a wealth of data and great charts. medium.com/@tomaspueyo/co… #coronavirus #covid19
World-o-meter is also a great site for tracking #coronavirus data, and one of the easiest to read. worldometers.info/coronavirus/

The @globeandmail also has excellent tracking of #coronavirus data, much of it done anonymously by the great @kingdomofevan

Who’s ‘flattening the curve’ on the #coronavirus, and who isn’t? A global graphic comparison, theglobeandmail.com/canada/article… #Covid19 #FlatteningTheCurve
