How are Covid-numbers globally divided?

Coronavirus cases are surging again across Europe and the U.S., but infections have stayed at low levels in most Asian countries.

While a surge in coronavirus infections is forcing U.S. states and European countries to shut down bars, open field hospitals and limit social gatherings to small groups of people, such measures are becoming distant memories in much of Asia.

By investigating two graphs containing Corona-numbers, you will discover how infections are being divided globally.
