  • Support as nominator – Note that animated images are not required to meet the 1500px resolution requirement. Kaldari (talk) 20:42, 19 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • No strong opinion from me. I like the idea of featuring material related to COVID-19, and even fast-tracking them for POTD, but I may be in the minority that finds the bottom part of the frame unhelpful and would prefer a different version of the chart itself, perhaps with more context. Mainly commenting because it looks like the credit has been removed from the image itself, which may be problematic per the Wikilegal guidance on removing watermarks. Unclear. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 01:09, 20 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Comment – I really don't like "Whatever, it's just like a cold or flu". Cold or flu never immobilized countries (not in our times). And if it did, no one would say "whatever". Bammesk (talk) 01:18, 20 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose – The EV of the animation just doesn't stand out to me. Maybe 'flattening the curve' isn't a concept that requires animation. What does the animation add over a still image that makes it more encyclopedic or "illustrates the subject in a compelling way"? Because, to be quite honest, this tells me more with less clutter about the same topic than this animation. -- Veggies (talk) 02:45, 20 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose – for the reasons mentioned above. --Janke | Talk 10:15, 20 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose Seen this "diagram" in the news, quite convenient that the "system capacity" line is situated just above the other curve. With this comic style even more ridiculous. —kallerna 10:17, 20 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • @Kallerna: The line is situated just above the curve because that's the goal of flattening the curve—to get it under the maximum capacity. Wherever that line sits, you want to get just below it. I don't understand why that is problematic. Kaldari (talk) 04:25, 22 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose – Annoying & childishly illustrated. – Sca (talk) 14:46, 21 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
