Out of the Blue – February 2020 Newsletter
THIS MONTH WE FOCUS ON:
For this month, we thought to share a newsletter on the fast-spreading Coronavirus COVID-19 and see some stats and visualisations of its growth globally, its potential impact on the economy, as well as some protective measures against it!
Here, you can see an interactive platform created by Johns Hopkins University, indicating all confirmed cases worldwide and a daily increase in each country.
|The Economic Impact|
According to an Ipsos online survey conducted between February 14 and 15th in nine large countries, the UK public believe that the coronavirus outbreak will have an impact on the financial markets and the global economy (60% agree).
|Comparing COVID-19, SARS, Ebola and Swine Flu|
Researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine have developed a new mapping tool that compares the coronavirus, or COVID-19, to other recent epidemics. These include severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), H1N1 or swine flu, and the Ebola virus.
|Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus|
These infographics provide advice on protective measures against the COVID-19 disease. Let’s all ensure that we follow these!
Until next month!
