Covid-19 started in the west coast, Washington first and then California. Yet, as shown in the animation, New York, with a population of 1.9 million (half of California, 3.9 million), quickly took the lead and became the epicenter of the Covid-19 crisis.

The plausible reason for slowness of west coast maybe be due to their early enforcement of stay-at-home or shelter-in-place order. WSU is the first University closing their campus.
