To make it quicker to flick between countries, I made a small change to my copy of the source.

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. procedure TMainForm.TreeViewClick(Sender: TObject);
  2. var
  3.   fs: TFormatSettings;
  4.   counts: array[TCaseType] of string = ('', '', '');
  5.   dates: array[TCaseType] of string = ('', '', '');
  6.   dt: TDataType;
  7.   ct: TCaseType;
  8.   saX, saY: TStringArray;
  9.   i: Integer;
  10.   ser: TChartSeries;
  11.   Y, Y0, dY, dY0: Double;
  12. begin
  13.   // START
  14.   if bClearOnClick then
  15.   begin
  16.        Chart.ClearSeries;
  17.        CreateMeasurementSeries;
  18.        UpdateGrid;
  19.   end;
  20.   // END
  22.   if TreeView.Selected = nil then ........ etc. etc.
bClearOnClick is a boolean toggled by a checkbox that I added to the UI.  Default value is TRUE.It's probably not the best way to do it - just a quick hack to suit the way I like to use the app.

@wp: Thaks for sharing the application. I just tried, workes fine.
I'd prefer a grid line for each day, would be imho more intuitive.

The possibility to show countries together is very nice. I grouped some regions, its really terrifying that the rising numbers can be seen everywhere in the world.

@all: Please don't make this a non-technical thread.

In Moscow we have flu increased, +50 a day, +60 a day, +100 a day, +150 a day... in next week, Msk may be closed at all. or not. no one knows. if internet will be blocked in Msk, I will not have inet. so no updates to all by codes.
no one here is sure for our future.

... and that many of the small numbers double also within a few days. Exponential growth is faster than any human activity to prevent damage. Only while the numbers are small there is some chance to do something. Don't waste time.

So we need to slow down the spread. In the meantime, we can try some cures, like hydroxychloroquine. By the way my government did not test people coming from China even when the first cases were discovered in France, not even take their temperature.

that's a realy bad idea!
Come on that's a strawman argument! That man self-medicated himself, and not with hydroxychloroquine. The bad idea is to self-medicate and even worse if you don't even know precisely what drug to take. I cannot believe that someone could consider this article as a proof against the drug.

Chloroquine is not a new drug. It has been tested for decades and proven safe, of course under medical supervision. Whether Trump agrees or not does not make it true or false. Use your brain to think instead of bathing in irony and believing just "the contrary of Trump"!

This kind of misdirection would not be too bad if people were not dying because they are not treated soon enough. Used under medical supervision, hydrochloroquine along with a certain antibiotic has already had great effect against Covid-19, just like it already had against SARS. But it needs to be given as soon as the person infection is detected.

For now in France the cure has only been allowed in hospitals, but when people get to hospitals, they are often already pretty bad. Nurses and doctors do not have enough masks nor hydroalcoholic gel because our government did not make stocks and encourages delocalisations so we only start to produce some. We do not have time to make the proper tests to prove things with 99,99% accuracy.
