- ***Logarithmic scale does not properly show negative numbers!***
That's [true](, and [very hard to work around](
## Changelog
### 06.12.2020
- Changed the way rolling average is calculated: a rolling average over `n` days for the current day is now calculated from data from the day and `n-1` proceeding days, instead of centering the rolling average on the selected day.
Fixes #1.
- The above also means we can easily support even numbers for the number of days a rolling average is calculated over. So we do. And as a cherry on top, rolling average over a period of up to 31 days can be selected; there are no and never have been any restrictions over period if entered directly in the url (for example, here's a [65-day rolling average of new cases in USA](,average:65;united-states))
