Cable nets running data driven coronavirus sidebars
The U.S. cable networks have all been using coronavirus data sidebars to showcase key statistics and data about the outbreak and effects on the world.
The information in the sidebar changes occasionally but typically includes global and U.S. case and death counts. During select times the live feed of the current Dow Jones Industrial Average is inserted. At other times promos for the CNN website or special content fill the space — as well as program notes about what’s coming up.
