Visualising Data from the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Plot 1

This chart uses data from selected major searches worldwide, these are plotted monthly over the past 16 years. Each search relates to a significant online search trend, ranging from past viral epidemics to political movements or simply common words. As you will see, Coronavirus overshadows them all.
The data is plotted as a frequency relative to all previous searches. All prior searches are then re-scaled to their frequency with respect to each new search term. The term being plotted is displayed on the right. Each term takes approximately 5 seconds to plot with 16 terms in total, but this can be skipped if needed using the instant option. Search terms are not case sensitive. Data was obtained from Google Trends, and individually downloaded to provide scaling:
