Note: Started this collection March 17 (and went backwards from there, then forward, to assemble a lot of the VI I’d been seeing on Twitter regarding COVID-19, coronavirus, global pandemic – however you’d like to refer to this). The first page quickly filled up, and started loading slow, so I started page two to keep the viewing experience optimal. At this point, there’s so much every day, that I’ll probably just start a new page each week (What day is this? Oh. It’s Monday. What month?)
Part one has the original “intro” I wrote for this (and it’s copy/pasted on part two). Part one contains VI from January 25 – March 31. Part two contains VI from April 1 – 5. Again, I’ll just start a new page weekly, to keep ’em fast loading. Part three has April 6 – 12. Part four has April 13 – 19.
“Systems thinking is too advanced for undergraduates” an economics professor once told me.
I just taught the basics of feedback loops to my 11 y.o. twins and then they drew this.

People who do not show symptoms may still be able to spread COVID-19. A face covering can help prevent you from spreading COVID-19 to other people. A face covering can include anything that covers your nose and mouth, including dust masks, scarves and bandanas. pic.twitter.com/MGh10QoHnw

In 1720 Marseille allowed a ship from plague-ridden Cyprus into port, under pressure from merchants who wanted the goods and didn’t want to wait for the usual quarantine. More than half the population of Marseille died in the next two years. https://t.co/IDapJhFhzM pic.twitter.com/vovtuQ1s7o

Wearing a cloth face covering CORRECTLY can help prevent the spread of #COVID19 to others. When you go out on essential trips, follow these “do’s”. If you have a child, remember those under age 2 should not wear a face covering. See https://t.co/lxWMe4NUBD. pic.twitter.com/gL8MKYCbM9
