MulletApps: Interactive Applications for COVID-19

Spread the love

TLDRUpFront: As the InfoMullet produces interactive applications for COVID-19 we will add them here. These applications are designed to give additional context and give the user the ability to select their own Country or US State, create comparisons, and save the charts as image files.

Tired of looking at this fella and feeling helpless? We were too.


This week the InfoMullet stood up the Muleteer Militia Data Science Team.  This group of data-science volunteers have been busy scraping information and generating interactive charting applications. The applications are designed to provide more context and avoid replicating what’s already widely available. We provide these to increase awareness and understanding or readers, equip citizens activists to advocate for greater government responses, and for readers to share information on social media. For that reason all charts are interactive allowing users to create their own comparisons by Countries or States and save that custom chart.

Each page below has two sections Using the Charts and Understanding the Charts.   Using the Charts provide instructions on how to use the interactive applications, and their limitations. Understanding the Charts tries to boil down some of the science behind the charts into layman terms and help readers understand what they are looking at, and how to interpret the data visually.

For more information on the charts including caveats on the quality of information please see our original article introducing them.

For more information on the mental model of COVID-19 and pandemic system structure see our in-depth article written in early March.
