This video is really a collaboration with Aatish Bhatia on how to begin to see the COVID-19 tipping point – we present an easy method to graph COVID-19 coronavirus cases utilizing a logarithmic scale in “phase space” – plotting the development rate from the cumulative cases, instead of either of those against time.
