50 charts showing the scale of COVID-19 | Health and Fitness – Mooresville Tribune

Over 44 million people have contracted the novel coronavirus as of Oct. 28, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. About 1.2 million have died.

As this pandemic rages across the globe and irrevocably changes more and more lives, its impact becomes increasingly difficult to visualize:1.2 million deathsthats about half the population of Houston, Texas. Thats 11 million people left in mourning, according to Kaiser Health Newsgreater than the populations of New York City and Chicago combined. Still, even making these abstract comparisons minimizes the importance of each life lost, each person left disabled by long-term COVID-19 complications,and each person who lost work or income during the pandemic.

Stacker compiled 50 charts that attempt to capture the scope of lives impacted by COVID-19. Some charts visualize global impacts, but most focus on the U.S. Sources include the COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Tableau Publics Coronavirus (COVID-19) Viz Gallery, and custom charts made by Stacker specifically for this story.

Read on to see how COVID-19 has impacted different nations, industries, and communities.
