COVID-19 World Spread Animation
Updated 30 Apr 2020
This code receives and processes data from the HDX and creates a geobubble and graphical plot of the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The plots are updated for each date and used to generate movie displaying the spread of the virus across the globe.
A plot (with the top 10 cases by countries) can be displayed next to the geobubble by setting 'live_plot_enabled' to 1. This can be disabled by setting it to 0.
NOTE: Compatibility issues have been fixed. Please let me know if you find otherwise.
