Daily COVID-19 data update LXXXVIII

Graphs day 88, pandemic day 93, day 164 since the first cases were diagnosed.

Total cases of COVID-19 diagnosed worldwide: 7,625,883

Total deaths: 425,931

However, as not-fun as it is, the COVID-19 show goes on, and as long as there is still an officially-designated global pandemic, I’ll keep making these maps and graphs. Here’s the plot of daily cases worldwide:

Total cases are headed in the wrong direction. Smoothed cases look like they could be headed in the wrong direction too. We should know more tomorrow.

Cases per million people by country

Here is a map of today’s cumulative cases per million people (since the beginning of the epidemic):

COVID-19 continues to be under control in the places where it was previously under control, so I’ll only show the graphs from countries where it is headed in the right direction or getting worse.

Countries headed in the right direction

Cases in the U.K. are looking really good. In another few days, I might be able to move them to the “under control” category. Belarus is also clearly headed in the right direction. I’m still worried about Russia and the United States, but at least they’re not getting worse.

Countries getting worse

Countries where COVID-19 cases per million people are still increasing (click for a larger version)

Cases per million people in Chile, Peru, and Saudi Arabia are increasing. Cases in Brazil are decreasing, but honestly I suspect it has more to do with Brazil intentionally underreporting cases than any true decrease in cases. When a country tells you they are going to underreport cases, believe them.

Deaths per million people by country

Here’s the map of deaths per million people, focused on Europe and the Americas:

and the curves of cumulative deaths over time in our usual ten countries:

Want to try out some of these graphs for 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’re still welcome to use my Excel template – I added a section for making the deaths graph to what is now verison 4.1, so that is the only one you need.

Update tomorrow, and every day after that until this pandemic comes to an end.
