Enable the public to make informed decisions about the pandemic situation

Rapid and effective communication of data-driven information is a core principle of modern public health practice. It can enable people and communities to make informed decisions and transform the general relationship between society and health authorities.

The German Federal Ministry of Health strives to follow this approach and inform the public about the coronavirus pandemic using various datasets.

A single platform offering multiple perspectives on healthcare data

We created a website that visualizes and describes various disease-related datasets from multiple sources. It offers visitors with different backgrounds and levels of knowledge an easy way to explore this data from diverse perspectives and through multiple types of media.

Visitors can focus on the current status, analyze the development over time, examine a geographical region of interest or compare the situation in different age groups. These perspectives help to contextualize the data and provide a bigger picture of the pandemic. They provide their information in visual and written form to bolster understanding.

Communicating trends and the current situation

The header communicates the pandemic’s overall situation and direction, visualizing ten indicators and their trends. It helps to compare the indicators, puts them into perspective and allows visitors to navigate between them to retrieve detailed information.

Analyzing long-term developments

The detail view describes each indicator’s current state in compact, auto-generated text. Additionally, visitors can explore the indicator’s historical development in a timeline chart. The chart highlights important pandemic events and the indicator’s maximum value throughout the pandemic to provide a chronological reference.

Understanding regional implications and age-based effects

In addition to the overview and historical context, the data is broken down by federal states and age groups.
