Aatish Bhatia – in collaboration with Minute Physics – did an amazing job of visualizing the Covid 19 data. His logarithmaic juxtaposition of total versus new cases shows when the virus growth begins to slow.
- Logarithmic plotting of new vs total cases shows when infection rates (as measured) slow
- When plotted in this way, exponential growth is represented as a straight line that slopes upwards
- The x-axis of this graph is not time, but is instead the total number of cases or deaths
- Notice that almost all countries follow a very similar path of exponential growth
