11 charts that explain the coronavirus pandemic


What symptoms are most common, which groups are most at risk, and more.

(Vox) 3-17-2020

The headline chart for me is the confirmed case count by country, normalised to days since 100 local cases.

The US, along with Spain, France, and Germany, are trending in line with Italy, only lagged by days.

Factoring in relative population gives the US slightly more breathing room, but at present trends, by absolute cases, it is ten days behind Italy. Factoring in relative size, about 5.5x the population (330m rather than 60m) buys about 2.5 doubling periods, which appear to be about 3 days, so an additional week.

The US has about 18 days to prepare for current conditions now being observed in Italy.

For France, Germany, and Spain: less than a week.

Assange hatte immer Recht mit seiner Aussage die USA wollte ihn langfristig weg sperren. Durch, Snowden und viele andere wissen wir überhaupt erst über die Machenschaften der Geheimdienste. Wir wissen das sie fast alles können inkl dein abgeschaltetes Handy nutzen, weitreichend Daten abgreifen. Sie können und sie denken sie dürften alles machen. Die Freiheit von Assange ist nicht nur für ihn selber bedroht. Das was die USA machen ist es Widerstand zu brechen und Angst zu schüren bei denen, die sich dagegen wehren überwacht und der Freiheit beraubt zu werden. Der erste und wichtigste Weg ist die Verantwortung selber zu übernehmen. Nur dann kann man frei sein. Ich bin der DSGVO inzwischen dankbar. Sie hat mir die selbstverschuldete Unmündigkeit im Bereich Daten aufgezeigt. Es fühlt sich gut an die Kontrolle darüber zurück zu gewinnen. Wer "kostenlose" Clouddienste verwendet, bezahlt diese mit der Datenfreiheit. Völlig unnötig weil es gibt Alternativen. Beim "kostenlosen" Facebook bezahlst Du Dein Leben und Deiner Identität in dem Du den Algorithmus fütterst, um mit Deiner Identität Geld zu verdienen. Völlig unnötig weil es gibt Alternativen! Du "verdienst" Geld, dass durch Schulden von andere für Dich geschöpft habe, bei dem du das zehnfach bezahlen muss als was Du bekommst. Völlig unnötig weil es gibt Alternativen. Der Punkt am Ende ist, das Freiheit einen Entscheidung ist und welchen Wert Du bereit bist zu schöpfen und einzubringen! Der Wert bist Du selber! Die Entscheidung alleine bei Dir!
