The COVID-19 Pandemic – One Year In



Exactly one year ago today, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic. 

In the days that followed, the ripple effects would be felt across society, impacting almost every aspect of everyday life. Although rising case and death counts, lockdowns, job losses, and crashing markets have been at the forefront of the news cycle, the full breadth and scale of events taking place over the last year are worth reflecting on in more detail.

To commemorate the one-year anniversary of the onset of COVID-19, we’ve compiled a number of original visual resources to help put the pandemic in perspective. This includes our mega COVID-19 timeline as well as many other interesting visualizations we link to below.
