The global curve is flattening, but COVID-19 (coronavirus) infections are still rising and new hotspots, like Brazil, may be emerging. That's a big improvement from weeks of dire, exponential growth across the world. But global or even U.S.-wide stats are difficult to parse when you're trying to figure out if the local situation in your town and state is getting better or worse.
Fortunately, a mix of leading data visualization specialists and passionate scientists have crunched the numbers on COVID-19 (healthcare statistics being compiled by the likes of Johns Hopkins or the New York Times) for graphs and visualizations that help shed light on the spread of the virus. Find out how well your county is battling the outbreak compared to others, or whether a state is really flattening its curve, or maybe more importantly, how flat the curve needs to get.
