COVID-19 TESTING IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES

COVID-19 TESTING IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES

Submitted by • September 29, 2020 www.rsb.edu.in

In my last blog, I looked at the stringency index of 30 countries. This is an index devised by the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford and is an aggregate of 9 measures of government enforcement on lockdowns, and closures of places where public gather in large numbers. We noted a cluster in the bottom right quarter. During the course of the next week, I took all 166 countries and made the same chart, this time using two different colours for stringency index less than, or greater than 50%. I obtained the nice chart displayed in Figure 1 using the ggplot package in RStudio.
