Time Lapse Global Spread of COVID-19

This map depicts each country's total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 since January 22, 2020. Rather than represent those totals with dots at country centers, it does so by distributing each country's value from its center to its surroundings. The map is for visualization purposes only; for its underlying data, see the COVID-19 case map here.

If you are using a smaller screen: you can start the animation by clicking the menu button at the top left of the map and selecting "time slider."
