Daily COVID-19 data update LXXV and six million

Graphs day 75, pandemic day 81, day 152 since the first cases were diagnosed. We have hit six million cases worldwide, a full five days before I predicted. I hate being right.

Total cases of COVID-19 diagnosed worldwide: 6,028,135

Total deaths: 368,944

The good news is that my predictions of deaths are still behind schedule. I might issue a new set of predictions soon. If I do, I’ll let you know. Here’s the graph of worldwide cases so you can follow along.

Today’s cases and deaths per country are presented as usual on maps, and in graphs using the new Big Ten Countries: The United States, The United Kingdom, Russia, Sweden, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Peru, and Belarus. Today is an odd-numbered day, so we’ll look at the progress of the pandemic day by day since February.

Deaths per million people by country

Please try it yourself! You can get the data that I used to make these graphs from the European Centers for Disease Control’s Coronavirus Source Data; choose “all four metrics.” You are welcome to use my Excel template (version 3.3). 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 after that until this pandemic comes to an end.
