The data are communicated by a 3D globe on the site, or via a scrolling table which offers live data on vaccinations according to the different countries.

Dan explains: ''I think positively about the present as I'm devoted and passionate about the new technologies that could help us build a better future.''

Recently, additional tables on the influence of virus variants, including the Delta variant, were added. Also, the Tamar Data Science School now enables students to get more insights.

The team is strong and solid with varied expertise in economics, politics, medicine, and statistics on global demography. It is made up of two journalists, a professor specializing in statistics, two data scientists and three developers.
