Graphs day 22, pandemic day 28, day 99 since the first cases were diagnosed. More than 1.3 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and more than 80,000 have died. Our usual graphs are below. The rate of new cases and deaths continues to increase roughly linearly.
The bad news is that I have had to rescale the countries graph again – Spain now has an diagnosed case rate higher than 3,000 cases per million. The good news is that in Switzerland and Italy, it appears that the rate of new cases is finally starting to slow down.
Once again – everything we are doing is working. Keep doing it!
You can get the data yourself from the European Centers for Disease Control’s Coronavirus Source Data; choose “all four metrics.” You are welcome to use my Excel template to make your own graphs.
Update tomorrow, and every day after that until this pandemic is over.
