How Covid-19 took hold in South Africa

South Africa is one of the top 10 countries worst affected by Covid-19. We used an interactive timeline to take you through South Africa’s first wave of the pandemic, from our country’s patient zero to the point where restrictions started easing up. 

We used data from the Department of Health, the National Institute for Communicable Diseases and more to visualise the spread and log superspreader events. View the full project here.
