Graphs day 64, pandemic day 70, day 141 since the first cases were diagnosed. Remember how I said I was resuming my normal Monday-Wednesday-Friday posting schedule and I would post COVID-19 data updates on all other days?
lol like I was actually going to not make graphs
Also, take a look at my post earlier today, examining one of the most persistent misconceptions about our response to COVID-19.
Total cases diagnosed worldwide: 4,861,456
Current worldwide deaths: 323,046
I am making two sanity-preserving compromises in today’s update. First, I am presenting the graphs with less commentary than usual. Second, I am skipping the most time-consuming parts: adjusting the line widths to represent case fatality rate, and updating the data labels. So, don’t read into the line widths on the case graph, and know that the graphs will look weird when labels overlap lines – but here are today’s graphs.
Cases per million people by country
Deaths per million people by country
More complete update coming tomorrow. In the meantime, 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 (version 3.2). I’d love to see what you can build with it, and I’m happy to help you figure it out!
Update tomorrow, and every day(-ish) until this pandemic is over.
