By the time borders were shut, and international travel restrictions imposed, it was too late. See why.
We analyzed the movements of hundreds of millions of people to show why the most extensive travel restrictions in human history haven’t been enough to stop the coronavirus outbreak
This graphic makes clear that China waited too long to shut down Wuhan. - On Jan 1st alone, the day after China alerted WHO about the virus, 175,000 people left Wuhan, many carrying the virus. - 7 million left in January, before travel was restricted.
Chinese Communist Party lies & corruption turned a local health problem into a global pandemic, devastating lives & dreams across our country. There will be a reckoning.

7 million people left Wuhan before travel was restricted. Amazing data visualization and story by the .

This is so well done. Unbelievable.
Remarkable, horrifying visualization of how easily coronavirus spread across the globe
An analysis of the movements of hundreds of millions of people to shows how the virus spread. Chinese officials did not alert the public to the risks in December. On Dec. 31: “The disease is preventable and controllable.”
Astonishing data viz pointing to the cost of official denial in the face of a pandemic...

Imaginative & brilliant visualisation: “How the Virus Got Out” - The New York Times
Absolutely the best #visualization and explanation of #COVID19 pandemic’s origins and progress I have seen. via
Travel bans do not work. told us so. The amount of time, energy, resources, and attention spent imagining we could stop this #coronavirus via borders is astounding. And tragic. Policy choices have opportunity costs. #COVID19
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this fabulous data visualization of the spread of #COVID19 is worth 10s of thousands. Kudos to & colleagues for their efforts
As the coronavirus spread across China in early January, international travel continued as normal. Thousands flew from Wuhan to cities around the world. By the time travel stopped in late January, it was too late. See how an outbreak became a pandemic.
7 million persons left Wuhan before the travel ban. This stunning visualization shows where in the world they all went. China waited too long to shut down Wuhan... and we are all paying the price. #Lockdown #covid19India
The timing could not have been worse. Hundreds of millions of people in China were about to travel back to their hometowns for the Lunar New Year. Here’s how the virus got out.
These maps show the disastrous effect of the Chinese government's censorship of the Wuhan doctors who tried to warn us early about the coronavirus. The ensuing three-week delay enabled the coronavirus to spread throughout China and around the world.
This graphically presented analysis makes clear that, by the time the US banned travel of non-Americans from China at the end of January, the virus had already spread here and around the world.

Great visual story on how unknowing travelers from the Wuhan area dispersed across China & the world as the virus was spreading regionally. There’s no doubt the official cover-up & delay in locking down the area helped the virus spread globally.
We spent weeks crunching numbers, talking with experts, writing crazy code, drawing complex diagrams to explore the effectiveness of travel restrictions. Here's why it hasn't been enough to stop the spread of the #coronavirus. #COVID19
This is an extraordinary visualization from the ⁦
This visualization is absolutely mesmerizing. This was one of the very first alarm bells for me: the world moves FAR faster and further today than it did 5, 10, 20 years ago. Every year, the likelihood that an epidemic will get out of control rises.
Slow clap for effort in this. Incredible.

Even the New York Times is now admitting what you already knew: the Chinese government lied & now the world is dealing with a global pandemic. "About 7 million people left [Wuhan] in January, before travel was restricted."

U.S. cases (confirmed) of coronavirus as of March 20
These graphics and animations are unreal, one of the best presentations of data I've seen. Unfortunately it shows how challenging it is to deal with pandemics in the time of rapid global mobility. Early on, extensive testing likely only solution...
World class use of interactive media format in this terrific piece on the #COVID19 spread

Kudos to the for this impressively clear interactive explanation: "How the Virus Got Out."
Excellent infographics showing how coronavirus got out of Wuhan. Virus was ahead of governments for weeks/months. Only drastic measures taken by Asian governments managed to curb its expansion there. Need same here
Beautiful visualization of #COVID19 movement out of Wuhan and out of China via cell phone data. Fast, honest reporting and decisive social distancing measures might have worked. Travel restrictions in US and elsewhere were too little, too late.
