Description

The Corona Exhibition will guide the user from the first confirmed case of COVID-19 reported in Wuhan, China in December 2019 through the world wide outbreak, tracking the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic via an interactive 3D globe.

A pandemic is an epidemic with a passport. It travels fast to multiple countries and continents and meet with a large number of people. In March 2020 almost every country on earth reported at least one confirmed case of the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus has simply hitchhiked with infected people traveling from one country to another.

********

Keep in mind that the number of actual cases is higher than the number of confirmed cases due to limited testing. The bars on the 3D Globe represent the cumulative numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in a country, measured on the last day of the month. Due to numbers that range from 1 to 20.000.000, the length of each bar has been calculated using the original number’s square root.
