I know you’re sick of Coronoavirus dashboards, but this one focuses on the ticking timebomb of the African continent. Created by Juliet Atellah and Alan Kawamara, the data is updated daily, and features plenty of dashboardy-visualisations care of Flourish. With countries like the Central African Republic owning just three ventilators, Corona in Africa could look much worse than the already-shocking number of fatalities coming in from the US and Europe.

  • Journalist, developer, community builder, newsletter creator and international man of mystery, Jason was one of the first South Africans to really grasp the importance of data in the newsroom and has remained one step ahead of the trends in the field all the way. Even Naked Data was conceived before email newsletters were cool again. But what does that tell you about the measure of the man? Nothing, that's what. He hides the superman CV behind a truly mild-mannered and overly modest persona and is best described as "one of the nicest guys in the business". When he's angry, it is righteously so, and his anger always wears velvet mittens. The true signs of his genius include the ability to create multilingual puns on demand (witness the alternative Naked Data strap "Putting the heita in to data") and the fact that he offered me a job.
