We prepared another animation to visualize the dramatic coronavirus spread. Bear in mind: it shows just a two-weeks timeframe from mid March to end of March. For further analyses, please refer to our COVID-19 data analysis tool.
COVID-19 worldwide situation from Mar 15 to Mar 30, 2020:
Mid of Mar 2020, the world had a closer look on Italy 🇮🇹 because of the exponential growth of new infections. The United States of America 🇺🇸 introduced country-wide testing, so reported infections passed Italy. Thus, USA became #1 hotspot worldwide with more than 140k cases end of March 2020, i.e. 20% of all worldwide infections. At the same time, China 🇨🇳 stabilized at around 75k cases and reported only a very small number of new infections after restarting the local economy stepwise. End of March, more than 715k COVID-19 infections were reported worldwide.
