COVID-19 Fun Pages!

Global Covid Cases

Text for a selected block appears below the table, graphics appear in a new page. Graphics are cluttered due to using only 10 colours, intent was to see if belonging to a bloc led to a uniform repsonse. The graphs show the answer. Not.

There are four blocs for Africa, due to the number of countries. These are Africa North of the Equator, South of the Equator, West of 15 degrees East, and East of 15. For these blocs, the data plotting start date for deaths per cases rate has been offset, as some countries often showed very high case-fatality rate in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The latitudes and longitudes for the countries in these blocs are from the Johns Hopkins University data, and for each country are the coordinates of the centroid; thus South of the Equator means the centroid for the country is located South of 0, not that the entire country is South of 0. West of 15 degrees East roughly contains the entire northern bulge of Africa, most of the countries West of Prague or Chad.

In the early days, the number of deaths can be equal to the number of cases for some countries so death rate looks like 100%. This is simply a function of data gathering and testing getting up to speed. Eventually the rate of death per confirmed case is trending towards 2 to 4%. The huge weight of the USA (25 percent of the total) on the numbers affects the global case-fatality weight.

Data taken as a csv download from Johns Hopkins University github. Data contains confirmed cases, deaths and population for each country. I added the multinational groupings such as OPEC or G7 membership. Data sort is based on the Per10K ( per capita * 10,000 population) statistics, desdending.

I chose 10K, as anybody who has been to a sports arena knows what 10,000 people looks like. It is half a Bell Centre crowd. It is an easily visualized number of people - a small town, a crowd at a game.
