COVID Between the Coasts

CBC logo created by: Sama Matkari. Promotional graphic created by Mariah Winne.

In 2020, WNIN, the University of Evansville and ¿Qué Pasa, Midwest? collaborated on a seven month research and reporting project to find stories of the coronavirus pandemic that weren't being told in seven Midwestern states. Here are those stories. COVID Between the Coasts is an ongoing project. If you know of a Midwestern story of the pandemic that has not been told, let us know.

Dr. Darrin Weber and his fall semester ChangeLab class students, Maya Frederick, Timmy Miller, Ethan Morlock and Pearl Muensterman created an extensive data visualization of the coronavirus progression in our seven state project area, available here.
