Day thirteen of me graphing data, day nineteen of the pandemic (as declared by the World Health Organization), day ninety since the first cases were reported in Wuhan. Worldwide as of 5:45 AM ET this morning, more than 700,000 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and more than 33,000 have died.
Yesterday I posted graphs of the total number of cases and deaths worldwide. Today the number of cases and deaths continues on the same trend as before. On the level of national data, I am continuing to track the number of cases and deaths in China, the United States, Iran, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The graphs below show cases and deaths per million people in each country. As always, suggestions on how to improve the graphs are welcome.
Cases per million people
Spain has taken the lead over Italy as the country with the most cases of COVID-19 per million people, with 1,673 cases per million versus 1,622 per million in Italy. Belgium has moved into third place with 940 cases per million people. And the growth rate in the U.S. (blue dotted line) continues to increase.
Deaths per million people
Italy still leads the world in per-capita deaths, with 179 deaths per million people. Belgium has overtaken France as well.
Update tomorrow, and every day until this pandemic is over.
