De News: Sweden (Anagrammatic Daily COVID-19 data update CIII)

Graphs day 103, pandemic day 110, day 180 since the first cases were diagnosed.

Total cases of COVID-19 diagnosed worldwide: 9,952,507

Total deaths: 498,519

Worldwide cases and deaths

Big jump in cases over the weekend, pulling the smoothed average up as well:

Cases of COVID-19 reported each day worldwide. The blue line is the actual reported number of cases; the red line is the smoothed number of cases (10-day moving average smoothing), showing the overall trend. Click for a larger version.

We have almost certainly hit the 10 million cumulative cases mark worldwide, and we’ll confirm that in my graphs tomorrow. And we’ll almost certainly hit 500,000 worldwide cases tomorrow as well, ahead of my prediction.

Countries headed in the right direction, featuring NOT SWEDEN:

Clearly I was overly optimistic in moving Sweden into the “headed in the right direction category.” Sweden is back to the “getting worse” chart today. Panama is gone for the moment (their cases per day have held steady the past few days), and Serbia has changed colors to purple:

The good news is that cases in Chile are down to 233 cases reported per million people, almost back down at the level where their curve will return to the main chart.

De bad news is Sweden.

Want to try out some of these graphs for yourself? You can get the data that I used to make the country graphs from the European Centers for Disease Control’s Coronavirus Source Data; choose “all four metrics.”

If it would help you to start from my Excel templates, please use them! The county data and analysis is in my national-level data template (now version 4.2).

Update tomorrow, and every day after that until this pandemic comes to an end or I lose my mind.
