Fair Warning - Unemployment, social distancing, and Natalie Portman
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #114 • View online
Hi hi! I have had the loveliest week off work. I’ve been taking care of my plants, dancing in my kitchen, reading (the first book in the Witcher series - it’s good!), painting my nails, and building the New York City skyline out of LEGO since I can’t move there yet [look upon my works, ye mighty…]
But I have not done any of the Serious Things I said to myself I would do. Oops.

Some interesting non-data things to start:

On the home front
Coronavirus Unemployment: U.K. Workers Furloughed and Struggling From Covid-19 Lockdown
Over the pond
Where New Yorkers Moved to Escape Coronavirus

Diagram shows how 9 people in a restaurant got the coronavirus thanks to the placement of an air conditioning unit
Natali(n)e Portman: The chart that wasn’t
Bad chart of the week

Runner-up this week is this weird map from a German paper which gives a very different impression to what the data is actually saying.
