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
ggplot2. You can learn these skills in the courses: Data manipulation with dplyr and Intermediate Data Visualization with ggplot2. The dataset for this project can be found here.
