NEW: today we've published the culmination of a weeks-long @ftdata team effort, summarising everything data has shown us about the virus over the year so far, from Wuhan to the autumn resurgence 

Free to read, with a wealth of #dataviz on the key trends.

A huge amount of work from a vast cast of people went into this, over many weeks.

Consider this our rolling credits screen:

1) @caletilford & @aendrew built a beautiful interactive experience, designed by @carolinenevitt who also drew up a bespoke colour palette for the series

2) @tomhannen @BobHaslett @sdbernard created some stunning visuals, including gorgeous animations 🎥😍

3) @alekswis @martinstabe @officeofjane @theboysmithy and I dug into data and scientific papers to report out the story itself, and added charts that told that story 📖📈

4) @manib0g was a masterful cat-herder, keeping us on our toes and making sure everything happened when it needed to

And 5) in the director’s chair as our Spielberg/DuVernay was @theboysmithy, who somehow managed that alongside making charts, writing words & doing 12 other jobs
