What Does the COVID-19 Global Cases Graph Say?

Today, we continue our adventure within the graphics universe with a short explanation of this one straight out from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) website. For people eager to follow the situation with a closer look, this website offers information on a constant daily basis. It is updated frequently and gives on different aspects that need our attention. It shares different information that might be a bit difficult to understand entirely, but our expert Hilton is there to comment it and to clarify certain intriguing details.

“This is a line graph which is also called a line chart. It gives a general idea of a situation throughout time. In this case we have three different lines on different aspects of the situation in a time of a pandemic. It has a horizontal (x) and a vertical (y) axis. The orange line represents China and the total number of cases from January until now. The yellow represents the rest of the world who have cases of COVID-19. We can see how many cases we have up to a given day, and we can also see how quickly the number of cases increases from day to day. 

In a positive light, the green line represents the number of recoveries up to a given day. Indeed, China is claiming that cases have stabilized and have been essentially unchanged for a month now. Is this the light at the end of the tunnel we are seeing? However, the yellow line is specifically called other locations which is really vague and maybe doesn’t make it clear which place we are talking about. Indeed, it doesn’t represent the exact rate of each country aside from China. Actually, it’s the combined cases of all other countries combined which can bais our judgment during our lecture of the graph. The constant increase of the yellow line might become one misinterpretation since it looks like it will keep going up, because the other countries mix all together in this graph looks to be still increasing. Nevertheless, this kind of graph makes it very easy to track the number of cases and also gives an appropriate idea of the rate of cases increases/decreases from day to day.”
