Logarithmic scale for COVID-19 registered/recovered/deaths charts is now supported in the dashboard. Log scale makes it easier to compare the trends for countries with huge difference in absolute numbers.

Nice work Oleksi, however, you are actually log-transforming the values, and not using the log scale. In log scale, the values are spaced according to the logarithm, however they are still the original values. Read on the different approaches here: people.umass.edu/whopper/posts/log...
Your solution loses interpretability.
