…And Counting

at | 3 Replies

An increasingly chilling time-lapse visualisation of every COVID-19 death worldwide from January to June 2020 (Inspired by Isao Hashimoto’s “A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945”) created by James Beckwith, who admits a follow up may be necessary. To wit:

Each country is represented by a tone and an expanding blip on the map when a death from Covid-19 is recorded. Each day is 4 seconds long, and at the top of the screen is the date and a counter showing the total numbers of deaths. Every country that has had a fatality is included.

Needless to say, the cacophony builds relentlessly.

    Excellent, much starker than reading a couple of hundred articles about the spread of the virus.
