Daily COVID-19 data update LXXVI: when the tanks go marching in

The President of the United States is deploying the U.S. military to crush protests by unarmed American civilians.

Suddenly, COVID-19 doesn’t seem so important – but people are still dying. It’s now graphs day 76, pandemic day 82, day 153 since the first cases were diagnosed.

Total cases of COVID-19 diagnosed worldwide: 6,136,085

Total deaths: 371,857

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 even-numbered day, so we’ll look at the progress of the pandemic day by day since February.

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, unless the U.S. government comes for me first. In which case, I give this blog to my good friend, the Grass Mud Horse.
