Data-driven insights on the coronavirus contagion


The Novel Coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China in December 2019 has now spread to over 200 countries. Over 2 million people have tested positive, with over 138,000 people losing their lives. The silver lining, however, is that it has a relatively lower fatality rate of 6%, and it is not mutating fast, suggesting that a vaccine could offer lasting protection.

We join hands with organizations across the world to do our bit during these difficult times. We aspire to keep you updated on the situation through our design-led, data-driven stories. This page will be updated regularly as we generate more insightful visuals, blogs and perspectives. In the meantime, stay home, stay safe and follow the World Health Organization’s advisory section on myth-busters, advice on when and how to wear masks, getting the workplace ready and healthy parenting during the pandemic.

Our sources for the data are CDC, ECDC, WHO, and Johns Hopkins CSSE
