Mapping COVID

Please, not another COVID map!  I get it.  Newspapers, universities, basement analysts and the like have all been producing COVID maps ranging from reasonably informative to downright awful.  But none is, how shall we say, exactly perfect.

Rather than create any more, I'm just going to try to improve some of those that I think are pretty good to begin with. 

Here's the NYT map tracking changes in new cases - each county gets a color based on the difference in new cases per capita from today compared with two weeks ago. Blue is falling, red is rising fast.
