Table data sourced from worldometers (online).

The following sources / links provide a selection of data and visualisations regarding the spread of the CoVID-19 virus. You may perhaps find it useful to bookmark them and look in from time to time to get some sense of the Coronavirus progression.

These graphs, visualisations, dashboards are a clear example of where Computer Science / Data Science can help distill and enhance ones understanding of a problem domain. Such systems will become all the more common as we move to a world of Smart Homes, Smart Cities, Smart Countries and a Smart Planet. The Internet of Things coupled with Cloud Computing Services, Data Analysis, improved communications throughput speeds and Mobile Computing will provide us with a far more integrated and real-time world than we know of today.

Some Key CoVID Milestone Tweets

The following tweets capture some key milestones, such as reaching 1K cases per 1M population 13th June 2020, or reaching 10M cases just two weeks later on the 27th June 2020. At the time of publishing this post 6th July 2020 the number of cases have reached 0.15% of world population (online). Hence in a little over three weeks the number of global cases have increased 50%, i.e. moving from 1K/1M to 1.5K/1M. We have also seen several recent days where >200K new cases are reported each day.
