"Estimating Actual Covid-19 Cases" by Khan Academy

The Khan Academy offers a 12-minute animated or instructional video “Estimating Actual Covid 19 Cases (Novel Corona Virus Infections) in an Area Based on Deaths”, put up on March 14.

The video seems to be narrated by Salman Khan himself.  It is based on a paper by Tomas Pueyo (from the Book Reviews blog). 

The main part of the analysis is to go back with each patient and make a separate bar graph on the day symptoms started.
The video winds up explaining the need to “flatten the curve”.
