Race and the virus

The New York Times obtained data on race and those affected by the coronavirus. Not everyone has been affected equally: Early numbers had shown that Black and Latino people were being harmed by the virus at higher rates. But the new federal data — made available after The New York Times sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — reveals a clearer and more complete picture: Black and Latino...

Coronavirus counts across Europe

Going with the shaded triangle peaks to show case counts and deaths, The Economist visualizes the current status across Europe: To assess how European countries are coping, and to monitor the danger of “second waves”, The Economist has assembled data on covid-19 cases and deaths for 39 countries, and for 173 sub-national areas for which data are available (see map above).

Map shows where to go to get away from fireworks

Using a voronoi map, David Yanofsky for Quartz mapped the places in the US that are the farthest away from legal fireworks sellers in case you need to get away from the early celebrations. Or, people could just stop setting off fireworks at 1am. That would be okay too. Tags: David Yanofsky, fireworks, Quartz

Decade-long time-lapse of the sun

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been taking a picture of the sun every 0.75 seconds for a decade. Above is a time-lapse of the resulting 20 million gigabytes of data: This 10-year time lapse showcases photos taken at a wavelength of 17.1 nanometers, which is an extreme ultraviolet wavelength that shows the Sun’s outermost atmospheric layer — the corona. Compiling one photo every hour, the movie condenses a decade of...

Map of Covid-19 surge

Axios provides a straightforward state map showing the percentage change in the 7-day average for confirmed Covid-19 cases. Numbers are up in a lot of places.

LEGO relief map

Cameron Bennett made a relief map of Idaho, completely out of LEGO bricks: In March, the COVID-induced quarantine sent me home, but more importantly, to my childhood Legos. What resulted was too much time, money, and effort spent entertaining some combination of my childhood and young adult self. By building a map. Out of Legos. What have I even been doing with my time.

How the coronavirus won in the United States

Using a wide array of sources, The New York Times shows how the virus spread at a granular level. The foundation is a map with moving dots, and the piece takes you through movements based on cell phone data and air travel in concert with known coronavirus cases. Your jaw might drop a few times as you go through it. Back in March, NYT published a similar work for how...

Map shows increasing confirmed cases in rural areas

This map by Tim Meko for The Washington Post uses time series lines to show change in confirmed cases by county. Using a combination of line thickness, height, and color, the map highlights the counties with the greatest change since early May. Hairy. Tags: coronavirus, Tim Meko, Washington Post
