#2294: Coronavirus Charts

Coronavirus Charts

[A graph is drawn.]

[A curve labeled “United States” starts about halfway up the vertical axis, rises almost to the top, and then levels off about a third of the way along the horizontal axis.]

[4 other curves are also shown, labeled “New York City area”, “Italy”, “Norway + Sweden” and “Ratio between France and Spain”.]

Y-axis label: Coronavirus deaths today plus total cases one week ago per capita

X-axis label: Negative test results per Google search for “COVID” (log scale)

Caption: I’m a huge fan of weird graphs, but even I admit some of these coronavirus charts are less than helpful.
