COVID-19 and mobility around the world

2020 has been a crazy year with unprecedented changes in what we do, where we go, and how much time we spend at home. The Google Community Mobility Reports data provides a great resource for tracking changes in mobility since the beginning of 2020 in various countries, provinces and cities around the world. But the data is not easy to use in order to compare changes in mobility between different places. That’s why I built two interactive web applications that allow the user to select the countries and time periods of interest, and get directly a plot comparing the trends. Moreover, I coupled the mobility data with data from the Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker to show the impact of policy changes on mobility. The first app compares countries around the world. The second one compares Dutch provinces. I update the apps when new mobility data becomes available. Comments and feature requests are welcome.
