The mission of Our World in Data is to make data and research on the world’s largest problems understandable and accessible.
While most of our work focuses on large problems that humanity has faced for a long time – such as child mortality, natural disasters, poverty, and almost 100 other problems (see here) – this article focuses on a new, emerging global problem: the ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease [COVID-19].
The outbreak started in late 2019 and developed into a global pandemic by March 2020.
