Coronavirus COVID-19 Riskiest Activities — Information is Beautiful

As #coronavirus lockdowns both tighten & relax worldwide, what activities might be riskier than others?

We collated & visualised the advice & professional opinions from over 500 epidemiologists & health experts as quoted in various media articles.

sources
Primary source: New York Times – When 511 Epidemiologists Expect to Fly, Hug and Do 18 Other Everyday Activities Again

Cross-referenced with articles from Reuters & NPR and others.

note
We had to merge & convert the advice & risks ratings shared by epidemiologists into a single scale. Plus there’s was some disagreement over certain activities and certain contexts. So there might be some blurriness around the risk levels we’ve apportioned. i.e. it’s not a hard scale. We’ve added text captions to qualify this where possible.

As ever, see all the data, sources & extra detail.

methodology
We extrapolated and graded the NY Times data into a 10 point scale. Then weighted and adjusted it according to any risk variance seen in the other articles. Where there was disagreement over a particular activity, we deferred to the NYT Times data or left the activity as ‘UNCLEAR’ in our datasheet. Disagreements & variance between ratings left some blurriness around the risk levels we’ve apportioned. i.e. it’s not a hard scale but a general one. We’ve added text captions to qualify this where possible. See the data for more.
