Hi

Herewith a great example of how to effectively communicate Geo Distribution of cases with the barchart above:

The only mistake found are the x-axis on the case fatality which are not showing as percentage, but anyone having a background in statistics and/or probability would understand it.

Hi Brahm,

Another improvement would be to use the same colors on both maps, which would make comparisons easier.

Also, the country borders and names should be more prominent (darker grey or bolder). For someone not familiar with details of African geography, it took me several minutes to identify the countries and their borders. Half of "Guinea" is close to being completely hidden, and really difficult to read, and only by looking at the bar charts, I'm able to deduct that the "190 cases/ 140 cases" in dark brown/red is in Guinea.

I also wonder if a single, semi-transparent dot for each case/ death would represent these data better.
