Covid-19 Vaccination: Data Analysis & Visualization

This article was published as a part of the Data Science Blogathon                                                                                                                                 

One of the coolest things I find about Data Science is Data Visualization. I can’t stop myself loving it. I think data visualization is like transform a story into a live-action movie.

Data is like a story that you imagine in your mind but you can’t share it with others in an explainable way but you can share it with others with the power of visualization. It’s like a movie script and when you transform the script into a movie then it becomes Visualization.

Data visualization helps transform your numbers into an engaging story with details and patterns. Data visualization enables us to recognize emerging trends and respond rapidly on the grounds of what we see.

Such patterns make more sense when graphically represented; because visuals and diagrams make it easier for us to identify strongly correlated parameters. Humans can process visual images 60,000 times faster than text.

Therefore, seeing a graph, chart, or other visual representation of data is more comfortable for the brain to process.

Here we are gonna analyze and visualize the latest situation of “Covid19 Vaccination“ around the world. You’ll find the dataset here.  We will use Plotly & Seaborn for data visualization & for data analysis, we will use pandas.

import numpy as np # linear algebra
import pandas as pd # data processing, CSV file I/O (e.g. pd.read_csv)

Reading the Data:

What is the proportion of Top 10 Vaccine in the race of fighting Covid19?

top10 = new_df['vaccines'].value_counts().nlargest(10)
Data description
data = dict(new_df['vaccines'].value_counts(normalize = True).nlargest(10)*100)                                  #dict(new_df['vaccines'].value_counts(normalize = True) * 100)
vaccine = ['Oxford/AstraZeneca', 'Moderna, Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech',
       'Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech',
       'Johnson&Johnson, Moderna, Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech',
       'Pfizer/BioNTech', 'Sputnik V', 'Oxford/AstraZeneca, Sinopharm/Beijing',
       'Sinopharm/Beijing', 'Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech',
       'Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Sinovac'] 
fig = plt.figure( 
    FigureClass = Waffle, 
    values = data, 
    title={'label': 'Proportion of Vaccines', 'loc': 'center',
    colors=("#FF7F0E", "#00B5F7", "#AB63FA","#00CC96","#E9967A","#F08080","#40E0D0","#DFFF00","#DE3163","#6AFF00"),
    labels=[f"{k} ({v:.2f}%)" for k, v in data.items()],
    legend={'loc': 'lower left', 'bbox_to_anchor': (0, -0.4), 'ncol': 2, 'framealpha': 0},
    figsize=(12, 9)
Covid-19 Vaccination proportion of vaccines


  • In a range of percentage of vaccines 28.44% used Oxford/AstraZeneca
  • Oxford/AstraZeneca is the most used Vaccine
  • Later Pfizer/BioNTech was the most used Vaccine and now it’s in 5th place also Oxford/AstraZeneca was not in the top 3 & now it’s in 1st place. Looks like Oxford/AstraZeneca works best among the vaccines

What is the number of total vaccinations & daily vaccinations according to countries?

data = new_df[['country','total_vaccinations']].nlargest(25,'total_vaccinations')
fig =, x = 'country',y = 'total_vaccinations',title="Number of total vaccinations according to countries",)
Covid-19 Vaccination country wise
data = new_df[['country','daily_vaccinations']].nlargest(25,'daily_vaccinations')
fig =, x = 'country',y = 'daily_vaccinations',title="Number of daily vaccinations according to countries",)
daily vaccination

Which vaccine is used by which Country?

vacc = new_df["vaccines"].unique()
for i in vacc:
    c = list(new_df[new_df["vaccines"] == i]['country'])
    print(f"Vaccine: {i}nUsed countries: {c}")


VAccine and country
fig = px.choropleth(new_df,locations = 'country',locationmode = 'country names',color = 'vaccines',
                   title = 'Vaccines used by specefic Country',hover_data= ['total_vaccinations'])
Covid-19 Vaccination vaccine used by each country

Which Vaccine is Used the most?

vaccine = new_df["vaccines"].value_counts().reset_index()
vaccine.columns = ['Vaccines','Number of Country']
vaccine.nlargest(5,"Number of Country")
which vaccine is used most

Oxford/AstraZeneca is being used by 60 Countries.

Total Vaccinations per country grouped by Vaccines:

fig = px.treemap(new_df,names = 'country',values = 'total_vaccinations',
                 path = ['vaccines','country'],
                 title="Total Vaccinations per country grouped by Vaccines",
                 color_discrete_sequence =px.colors.qualitative.Set1)
Covid-19 Vaccination per country group by vaccine
fig = go.Choropleth(locations = new_df["country"],locationmode = 'country names',
                    z = new_df['total_vaccinations'],
                    text= new_df['country'],colorbar = dict(title= "Total Vaccinations"))
data = [fig]
layout = go.Layout(title = 'Total Vaccinations per Country')
fig = dict(data = data,layout = layout)
Covid-19 Vaccination per country

Daily Vaccinations per Countries:

fig = go.Choropleth(locations = new_df["country"],locationmode = 'country names',
                    z = new_df['daily_vaccinations'],
                    text= new_df['country'],colorbar = dict(title= "Daily Vaccinations"))
data = [fig]
layout = go.Layout(title = 'Daily Vaccinations per Countries')
fig = dict(data = data,layout = layout)
Daily Covid-19 Vaccination per country

Relation between Total Vaccinations and Total Vaccinations per Hundred:

fig = px.scatter(new_df,x = 'total_vaccinations',y='total_vaccinations_per_hundred',
                 hover_name = 'country',size_max = 50,
                 title="Total vs Total vaccinations per hundred grouped by Vaccines",
                color_discrete_sequence = px.colors.qualitative.Bold)
total vaccination per hundred

If you hover your cursor to the scatters you will also see the country names,number of total vaccinations and number of total vaccinations per hundred. By this we observe that:

  • Although USA & China produce the highest number of vaccinations to their citizens, according to their population this is not much.

What is the trend of total vaccinations according to countries?

def plot_trend(dataframe,feature,title,country):'ggplot')
    for i,country in enumerate(country):
        plt.subplot(8,4,<a onclick="parent.postMessage({'referent':'.kaggle.usercode.14440604.62732853.plot_trend..i'}, '*')">i+1)
        data = dataframe[dataframe['country'] == country]
        sns.lineplot(x=data['date'] ,y=data[feature],label = feature)
country = ['Argentina', 'Austria', 'Belgium', 'Brazil','Canada','China','Czechia',
           'Denmark', 'England','Finland', 'France','Germany','India','Ireland', 
           'Israel', 'Italy', 'Kuwait','Mexico', 'Netherlands','Norway', 'Poland',
           'Russia','Saudi Arabia', 'Scotland','Singapore','Spain', 'Sweden',
           'Switzerland', 'Turkey','United Arab Emirates', 'United Kingdom', 'United States']
plot_trend(df,'total_vaccinations','Trend of total vaccination',country)
Trend of total

End Notes:

You can collect the dataset from here and play with it. You may find a difference in the results because every day a lot of people getting infected by Covid19 and the data of covid19 is being changed every day.

At last, I wanna say that we all know that, we are in a very bad situation because of Covid19. All we have is each other so let’s help each other to the best we can & pray for our planet to get well soon.
