As you use COVID-19 data, it’s important to remember that, while the underlying data comes from trusted sources, it’s difficult to estimate an accurate count for the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide because of the vastly different approaches to both testing and reporting. Also remember, even data visualizations based on accurate data can be misleading.
