Time Since 100 Confirmed Cases

I have been fascinated by all of the data visualizations coming out related to the Coronavirus Pandemic, especially when they do a good job of making the data easy to interact with and understand. By now you have probably seen some version of the chart below, highlighting the time since 100 confirmed cases by country, on a logarithmic scale:

What I love about this chart is the animation to highlight countries over time, so I decided to take a stab at recreating this chart using R & ggplot.
