Upon reaching 200,000 deaths from Covid-19, Covid Act Now released a 22 s long map showing "how the pandemic spread across the U.S. from state to state," providing "a quick, vivid idea of the scale and speed of infection.

This map was shown on many outlets; this is from Forbes, September 23, 2020. Senior correspondent Alex Ledsom discusses what it means: Covid incidence increases with more movement, masks are important in controlling its spread, masks reduce interstate as well as intrastate spread, relax mask wearing and flare-ups occur, large gatherings, outdoors "don't lead to spikes if critical safety measures are taken.

One message is clear: mask-up, mask-up, mask-up. It is a good practice for you and for others.
