Since the COVID-19 outbreak, media all over the world have been hustling to produce the prettiest and most informative graphs about the outbreak.

Stopping COVID-19 with Misleading Graphs

Graphs and charts are great at conveying complex statistics to a general audience. What graphs are also great at is misleading people into making wrong conclusions about the world. Some media mislead because of their incompetence in statistics, while others intentionally manipulate the data to paint a better picture of their country.

In this article, we will look at how Argentinian, Russian, and Georgian media have been “fighting” the outbreak by manipulating graphs.

The official dashboard run by Singapore’s Ministry of Health, for example, presents specific data about each hospitalized case (including age, sex, approximate residence, workplace, and places those individuals visited). But ZP Lee from UpCode Academy, which runs a dashboard that scrapes from this data, says these locations have such high population density that “even with all the data in the website, it’s next to impossible to identify a person accurately.” Here’s a ranking of some of our favorite—and least favorite—coronavirus dashboards on the web. This is far from an exhaustive list, and more dashboards continue to spring up with each passing day. But it should give you a sense of what’s useful to bookmark as coronavirus continues to spread across the world. 1. This dashboard proves you don’t need to be the flashiest to be the best.

Facebook and Instagram posts in Canada are sharing a chart showing only six reported cases of the flu for this season alongside claims that the government is falsely passing off flu cases as Covid-19. The claims are false; influenza and Covid-19 are tested, tracked and reported separately by the provinces and territories, and public health measures against the novel coronavirus have also contributed to fewer flu cases than usual. “Looks like they found a cure for the flu... only 6 cases in 2020 compared to the 42,541 flu cases last year in Canada.

Bad Data Visualization in the Time of COVID-19. These three data viz pitfalls, which have proliferated during the pandemic, are instructive for data designers and consumers alike To paraphrase a popular idiom: there are lies, damn lies, and data visualizations.

This saying holds especially true in times of high pressure, such as in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s image, which features a floating nasal swab, “clouds of confusion,” and even an octopus, brought new attention to the intersection of data visualization and the pandemic.

Inadvertently or not, many data visualizations twist a mathematical fact into a misleading image or statistic. And with misinformation about the novel coronavirus spreading almost as insidiously as the virus itself, it’s crucial to review visualization best practices to make sure that governments are presenting the most accurate and helpful information to residents.

Effective Data Visualization In the Era of COVID-19.

The Math Behind Social Distancing - Visual Capitalist. As we wait for scientists and healthcare professionals to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, there is another, more readily available tool at our disposal. Social distancing, defined as measures taken to reduce physical contact, is the first line of defense for containing an infectious disease like COVID-19. That’s because these infections spread when people cough, sneeze, or touch surfaces on which the virus resides. To help us grasp the impact these measures can actually have, today’s infographic illustrates how a reduction in social exposure can theoretically contain the spread of infection. Theoretical Potential The calculations used to create today’s infographic come from Signer Laboratory, a stem cell research lab located in the Moores Cancer Center at the University of California San Diego.

Using a summation formula makes it possible to estimate the number of new infections over a 30 day period, across three scenarios. *For estimations only. Timing is Everything. - The Washington Post.
