What we can learn from the countries winning the coronavirus fight: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-26/coronavirus-covid19-global-spread-data-explained/12089028 (Great explainer on log scales and growth curves explained in the context of COVID-19 in different countries)
This video is a collaboration with Aatish Bhatia about how to see the COVID-19 tipping point - we present a better way to graph COVID-19 coronavirus cases using a logarithmic scale in "phase space" - plotting the growth rate against the cumulative cases, rather than either of these against time.
