  1. The visual aspect is good at getting its point across in terms of number of deaths caused by each disease, but it incorrectly suggests a viral cause for all the diseases listed. In particular, the right-hand panel of honorable mentions states "Although the following viruses do not have a figure for total amount of lives claimed, they continue to terrorize various areas around the world. " It then lists Malaria (caused by a parasite), Tuberculosis (caused by a bacterium) and Yellow Fever (this one is actually caused by a virus). I would love to see an updated version made that correctly attributes the causative agents of each disease.
  2. Good catch Rebecca. It's a shame such a lovely infographic has to be ruined by something that is easily fact checked on Google.
