Coronavirus time lapse video
The video shows three different perspectives on the distribution of coronavirus cases in different US Counties, using data from USAFacts:
- In the map on the left – Confirmed Cases by County – we have mapped the number typically reported in the news and most websites.
- In the middle, we visualize Confirmed Cases per Capita to account for the vastly differing population densities between counties.
- The third map, on the right, shows the Growth of New Cases for counties reporting more than 10 cases. Growth factors greater than 100% suggest steepening growth, while less than 100% suggest a flattening growth curve.
Taken together, these three perspectives provide useful context to assess the relative impact of this pandemic in different US geographies, as it continues to evolve.
