I've been curious to see how COVID-19 compares to some other recent epidemics, so I scoured the web for data and made an animation. Pretty startling how steep/early the COVID-19 growth curve is right now.

Github repo with all the code and data (including all source references): . Most data is manually pulled from WHO/CDC weekly reports. Seems people have an interest so I'll try to keep it updated. Data errors, bug fixes, and suggestions very welcome.

This is really interesting. How did you define day 0? Is it just the day of the first known case?

Did my best from public sources to determine the date of the first confirmed case. Certainly not perfect by any means.

I realized this I was unclear. I am asking for the sources so that I can use this as an example in my class.

It's too bad humanity was wiped out by the swine flu or they would really have appreciated this

Because some don't seem to be getting it - COVID is rising much earlier and faster than H1N1 and will likely be exponentially more devastating.

It’s the rapid elevation in numbers at the start that’s going to overwhelm the hospitals.
