Within months, COVID-19 went from an epidemic to a pandemic. From the first identified case in December 2019, how did the virus spread so fast and widely? In this free R project, we will visualize data from the early months of the coronavirus outbreak to see how this virus grew to be a global pandemic.
This project assumes you can manipulate data frames using
dplyr and make plots using
- 1From epidemic to pandemic
- 2Confirmed cases throughout the world
- 3China compared to the rest of the world
- 4Let's annotate!
- 5Adding a trend line to China
- 6And the rest of the world?
- 7Adding a logarithmic scale
- 8Which countries outside of China have been hit hardest?
- 9Plotting hardest hit countries as of Mid-March 2020
