A New Animation of the Spreading of SARS-CoV-2 in Germany

Update 2020-11-28: I’ve updated the resulting image with data until Nov 27, 2020.

In August I published first an animation of the spreading of SARS-CoV-2 in Germany.

Some days ago I found a similar visualization for Austria by Matthias Schnetzer. But he uses a different scale. His worst colour is for 150 incidents per 100,000 residents during the last 7 days. (I used 50 as last value of the scale.)

He also provides a link to his code He uses a little different way for plotting. So I thought I should update my animation using his way.

Interesting Article about dplyr

dplyr is a wonderful package for data wrangling. It’s far more useful than pandas at the python front.

There’s also a constant development to make this package even more useful. If you want to see what you can do with the latest version I suggest you have a look at this awesome article with examples.

I’ve enjoyed reading it.
