NEW: you asked, we answered.

We’ve just launched an interactive version of our Covid trajectory tracker charts, where you can now highlight any country you like, and choose between log & linear scales and even ... per capita numbers 😱 

A neat feature we’ve added is stateful URLs:

Pick your own countries, scales & units, share that URL, and anyone clicking the link will get your exact chart & settings, letting you use these charts in conversations

e.g here’s Sweden vs Norway, per capita 

This is just one of two interactive pages we’ve launched today.

The second, masterminded by @davidcblood, tracks countries tightening & relaxing lockdowns.

This is a huge part of the story now, and you can watch as Europe begins easing restrictions 

These pages are huge team efforts.

@davidcblood and I are cogs in a slick machine involving @sdbernard @maxharlow @carolinenevitt @aendrew @theboysmithy @martinstabe @alekswis @joannaskao, and we’re using data from @ECDC_EU & Oxford’s @BlavatnikSchool.

And remember, we’re still tracking the gold-standard metric for Covid death tolls: overall excess mortality.

Free to read at 

We’ll be adding more countries and cities today and beyond, so keep this page bookmarked.
