South Korea shows that it is possible to win against #COVID19 Testing is a big reason for their success Daily new confirmed cases peaked 12 days ago and are falling since then. You can see the data for all countries in our entry
How rapidly is the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rising in different countries? Since a minute ago we have a chart that allows you to answer this question. You find it here Big thanks . You did a lot of hard work these weeks!
👉Here you find our up to date statistics until now –––– 👇 Below you find my thoughts on what’s ahead: two possible futures. Very different futures. Let’s call it Pandemics, Fast and Slow
Since a minute ago, it is possible to explore the data on confirmed COVID19 deaths and cases. For all countries. It is the latest published data from the World Health Organization. We’ll keep it up to date. All free to use and download for everyone. 👉
Until recently tuberculosis was the infectious disease that killed most people per year. 1.18 million. On an average day 3,231 die from TB. (1,180,000/365.24=3,231) COVID-19 has surpassed this and is now the world's most deadly infectious disease.
We just updated all our #COVID19 charts & data for Monday 20th April: ¯¯¯ This is how Germany and the UK compare. (Germany's population is larger. And both countries had the outbreak at the same time.)
Why are early containment measures in an epidemic important? By slowing the rate of infection the peak is lower – and the number of people who are sick at the same time does not exceed the capacity of the healthcare system. Now in our entry on #COVID19
What do we know about the mortality risk of COVID-19? We extended our entry on the coronavirus outbreak to explain what we know – and what we do not know – based on the available data and research. #Coronavirus #Covid19
The reason for great concern about #COVID19 are *not* the current numbers. It is their *growth rate*. On Our World in Data we now report the answer to How long did it take for the number of confirmed cases to double? for every country. You find it here
We rebuilt our work on the pandemic: At its heart is now the tool that you see in the video – our new #COVID19 Data Explorer. If you want to understand the global pandemic we hope the new site and the new Explorer are useful for you.
I said it internally, but want to also say it publicly. I am so very proud of everyone in the team. We worked through many days and nights. We are 6 full-time colleagues now. The support in the team has been beautiful + I think we are getting somewhere.
Symptoms Of #COVID19: 🤒Know the symptoms 🤒~90% of cases have a #fever 🤒~68% of cases have a dry #cough 🤒~19% of cases experience shortness of breath 🤒#COVID19 rarely causes a runny nose or diarrhea 🤒Based on 55,924 laboratory-confirmed cases 👉
Older individuals are at greater risk of dying from #COVID19 partly because they're more likely to have underlying health issues. From early data it appears risk of fatality is higher in those with cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, diabetes.
Best resource found so far for data on #COVID-19
Over the last days (and nights) built this interactive COVID19 table. It answers the question: How long did it take for the number of confirmed cases to double? It also plots cases over time. This table – for all countries – is here:
At we have been working on the coronavirus pandemic for the last weeks. You find all our work here: 👇 I'll share a thread with some of the interactive visualizations we made.
2 of the best sources for tracking #COVID cases & deaths increase in US cases (now 2175) but marked under-detection d/t dearth of tests note doubling times
We just updated all statistics across all 34 charts on the pandemic for Tuesday March 31: In the US there are now more confirmed cases than in any other country and their number is increasing more rapidly there than in than most other countries.
Sunday update: All our #COVID19 charts & data are up to date for today 3rd May ¯ The death rate by world region: • staying high in North America. • falling in Europe. • rising in South America. • comparatively low in Asia, Oceania, and Africa.
“What’s up with Iceland?” - this graph has caught the attention of several of my friends abroad and there are probably things others can learn from the Covid response here in Iceland. Let me elaborate (chart: ) 1/
Latest data and Why doubling time is a key metric to monitor. If you look at table (left), you'd think US, Germany were as good or better than South Korea for confirmed cases: death ratio But that's not normalized for time (right)
The media is missing the plot. It is *not the number* of cases and deaths that matters. It is their *growth rate* that matters. We report for each country: How long did it take for the number of confirmed cases to double? ➡️ –
Three months ago today the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Vietnam. Since then the country has done 189,253 tests. These tests confirmed 268 cases in total. This means Vietnam found one case for every 706 tests. Data
A Policy Experiment: Denmark, Sweden and Norway each had their first confirmed Covid death about one month ago.
For the New York Times just listed the five best websites on the pandemic and our work on is among them. These are his 5:
Just a minute ago updated all #COVID19 data, charts and tables for 2nd April. Explore for all countries here: USA now seeing >1000 deaths per day and still rising steeply.
Testing numbers for #COVIDー19 is a key indicator for how serious countries are in tackling the pandemic.
The majority of confirmed cases are currently in high income countries. But at rapid growth you get to very large numbers quickly even when starting from small numbers. And the growth rate of confirmed cases is now much faster in the poorest countries.
Just updated our page: One key metric to look at is how fast the number of confirmed cases of #COVID19 is doubling. As the center of the outbreak is on lockdown it makes sense to exclude China. Excluding China, the doubling time of cases is now 4 days.
Psychological research (and a conversation with just about everyone) shows that we do *not* have a good intuition for what exponential growth means. I've tried to give a sense for it. [From our entry on the coronavirus outbreak here: ]
2/ What concerns me is the *growth rate* of cases & deaths in countries that do not have containment measures in place. The doubling time is the metric I am focusing on now in our work Outside of China the number of confirmed cases doubled every 4 days.
How many confirmed cases of COVID-19 are there? This is the latest WHO data. Outside of China the number of confirmed cases increased by 250% in the last week. From our page on #COVID19 where we explain what can and cannot be said based on the known data
Are the number of confirmed deaths rising faster in China, Italy, Spain, South Korea, or the US? Our interactive chart shows you the trajectories since the day each country had the fifth confirmed death. Here is the interactive version:
All our work on the pandemic is up-to-date for Saturday April 4: ––– South Korea shows what is possible. It seems to me that the most important question right now is to find out what Korea did well and learn from them.
Italy has now surpassed China on the number of #COVID19 deaths. Very clear why it’s wrong to look at China’s trajectory & assume the rest of the world are following the same but with a little lag. We just updated data for last day for all countries:
Many European countries – shown in blue – have reached the peak of confirmed cases some weeks ago. Very different from this are many Latin American countries, where the number of confirmed cases continues to increase. [source, as always: ]
How do countries compare in the number of tests for #COVID-19? Iceland 128 per 1,000 Israel 28 per 1,000 Portugal 19 per 1,000 USA 12 per 1,000 UK 5.9 per 1,000 Indonesia 0.2 per 1,000 You find the data for these and other countries on our site here
The rate at which the number of confirmed deaths increases in different countries is very different. We just did our daily update of the data across our work You find data for all countries there.

By far the best collection of information I've seen so far on COVID-19 - would be nice to see something equally transparent from world Governments as to their strategies
A wild day here for our small team. In the night the WHO changed their data so that it was no longer possible to use their work to understand changes over time. We had to rebuild all our work. Now we are up to date again with data from the European CDC.
How long did it take for the number of confirmed deaths to double? Below is the table for all countries with more than 50 confirmed COVID-19 deaths. In our work you find it for all countries and for confirmed cases as well:

By far, this is the best coronavirus consolidation I've read
Just did our daily update of #COVID19 data & charts for 16th April. Many of you asked us to restructure our work to get straight into the charts you want to see. So we’ve made a major update to our work today. Hope this is helpful!
Tuesday update for all our work on the pandemic: ¯ The chart shows a group of large countries at the center of the pandemic – now referred to as 'BRIMUS'. Brazil, India, Mexico, Russia see rapid growth of cases; the US stays at the top.
All our work on the pandemic is now up-to-date for today Thursday April 9 ––– A country I look for every day is Taiwan. – Taiwan had an early outbreak (first case was Jan 22). – But as the chart shows, growth remained very, very low.
We just updated all of our work on the #COVID19 pandemic for today Monday 24th May. → This view from our Data Explorer shows the very large differences in the rate of confirmed deaths across Europe.

How long did it take for the number of total confirmed cases to double? 3 days in many European countries. You find this data presentation in a long table for all countries here Shown here is the latest data published by the WHO.
Just updated all of our #COVID19 charts & tables on confirmed cases & deaths for 6th April. We give these for all countries. But have also added regional aggregations. Early in the epidemic, World = China. This is far from the case now.
Somos o 2º país com mais casos no mundo. Nossa epidemia começou a crescer agora, mal vimos as mortes que vem pela frente. Plotei tanto o número de casos ou mortes absolutos quanto relativos por milhão de pessoas, o cenário é pavoroso de qualquer forma.
Bookmark this. When the doubling time of deaths* gets above 3 days, we will have begun to get past the runaway period of the pandemic. Note the current doubling times for China (35 days) & South Korea (12 days). *not cases, which can be underdiagnosed
Coronavirus coverage shows why it is so very bad that much of the media does not report data. The coverage of the BBC on symptoms gives you *no* idea that some are very common – fever (90%) & dry cough (67%) – and others not. We hope we are more helpful:
For those who died from #COVIDー19 it took 2 to 8 weeks from onset to death. We need to know what this means for the case fatality rates that are in the news now. In our work on COVIDー19 we explain what we can and cannot say based on current stats
Best thing that I’ve read on the data.
The death rate in the US has now overtaken Europe's. →
Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is a new global problem. We have published our overview of the early research and data on the outbreak and will extend it in the days ahead. You can find our latest work here: #COVIDー19 #coronavirus
A good summary. With actual data. And careful interpretation.
Daily confirmed deaths • continue to fall in the European centers of the outbreak. • staying high in the US. • continue to rise in Russia, India, Mexico, and Brazil. – Our work on #COVID19 is up-to-date for today Saturday May 9. – Here is our main page

All our work is now up-to-date for today Friday April 10 – This shows confirmed deaths relative to the size of the population. – In Italy and Spain the rate of confirmed deaths is falling. – In the US and Germany it's rising. – And in Korea it stays low.
This logic – summarized in the illustration below – is the logic of #FlattenTheCurve: By slowing the spread we reduce the peak and can care for all the people that need care. [more here: ]
But official daily death tolls, produced by national health ministries, understate the true number of people killed by the virus at that point. As and have explained, establishing the cause of death can take several days. (3/14)

Qualquer argumento de "mas tal condição mata X pessoas por dia/mês/ano e o coronavírus até aqui só matou Y" não entende crescimento exponencial. Esse tipo de ignorância fica exposto em pouco tempo já que o número de mortes infelizmente dobra a cada 6 dias.
Disse ainda em março que em abril veríamos se o Brasil continuava seguindo pelo cenário de Espanha e Itália e podemos ver que não estamos. Distanciamento social funciona e tem funcionado bem aqui #FiqueEmCasa :)
. Sobering numbers from the regularly-updated #COVID19 website: -- US confirmed deaths are still doubling every 3 days: far too high. #NovelCoronaVirus #CoronaVirus #Pandemic #ExponentialGrowth

A comparison of the case fatality rate of COVID-19 across four countries. Part of our discussion of what the available data tells us – and doesn’t tell us – about the mortality risk of COVID-19:
The total number of COVID-19 cases is not known. It is certain that the total number of COVID-19 cases is higher than the number of known confirmed cases. This is mainly due to limited testing.

Evolution of the number of deaths from Covid-19 by country. These tend to be more comparable across countries than detected infections, since the rate of testing for milder cases varies a lot across countries. Below the figures with & without China:
"We want to know the total number of people infected with COVID-19 . . . it is necessary to have widespread testing. Testing is crucial as it allows the infected person to avoid infecting others and to quickly receive the care they need."

Just updated our COVID data & charts for 2nd June. For UK: despite lowest daily death toll in months (111 deaths), the Gov’t have added historic data from care homes to its cumulative count. This inflates daily count today to 556 deaths.
Assuming we can generalise these data outside of China then the message is pretty clear. The old and the sick are at particular risk. #SocialDistancing
I can see this graph (by ) being used in statistics text books along side pictures showing e.g. survivor bias. With this strong relationship between testing and case count it is clear why amount of deaths per case are so vastly different for some countries!

"We need to be careful in interpreting the case fatality rate of an ongoing outbreak" dives deep on the #CFR for #covid19.
Hi Nate, We are trying our best to make the World Health Organization's data accessible and available. And to explain what can and can not be known based on the currently available data and research. Here is our central page on COVID-19
Australia is now at over 250 #COVIDー19 cases, doubling every 4 days (I’ve heard 3 but I have a good source for 4 below) Unless we #FlattenTheCurve that means the entire population will be infected within 68 days.
1/6 With the aim of "flattening the curve" & protecting vulnerable groups at risk, I fully support early, top-down, heavy-handed interventions to reduce the spread of Coronavirus. For high-quality information & illustrations: - -

This is a really lovely comprehensive explainer. Well done.
People want to know the mortality risk of #COVID19 But we should be careful in using case fatality rates Example: Guyana had first confirmed case & first death today. Would imply a 100% fatality rate! We explain what we can & can’t say about risk here
1) It's not 'their' epidemic. It's a pandemic. All over the world. It sadly belongs to all of us now. 2) You do realize the US has been hit the hardest? Those who HAD STRONG PUBLIC HEALTH RESPONSES (Taiwan, South Korea & Japan) did the best. The stats👇
Unknown. If we knew the prevalence of infections it would help, but no widespread testing to reassure us. Lots of shared decision making. Competing risk of death within 2-8 weeks for #COVID19-ill patients (case fatality) by age
This is the India page of #COVID19 data Need to look at case/death numbers alongside testing rates (going up, but still low compared to populations size).

Trajectories of deaths per capita – Germany in comparison with its neighboring countries. A flatter trajectory than Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, but higher than others. [Here is our daily updated country profile for Germany ]
The new #COVID2019 data for Italy by the WHO is out. • The number of total confirmed cases has *doubled in the last 3 days*. (from 4.6k to 9.2k) • In the last day the increase was: 38% (from 7.4k to to 9.2k confirmed cases)
The UK is experiencing the second highest rate of daily confirmed deaths due to #Covid_19 in the world. Over the last seven days, only Sweden's rate has been higher
At the peak of the outbreak the number of confirmed COVID19 deaths in France and the UK was similarly high. But then two paths diverged: in the last week France reported on average 76 deaths per day, while the UK reported 302 deaths per day.

What is especially important is to communicate the symptoms of COVID19. The most common ones are a fever (almost 90% of cases) and a dry cough (2 out of 3). A runny nose is not common for COVID19 cases [See: ]
The daily number of confirmed deaths keeps increasing day after day in Brazil. [From our pandemic country profile for Brazil ]
We explain the definition of both metrics in our entry: A 3.8% crude mortality rate would mean that 3.8% of the total population died. This is not the case. It is the case that 3.8% of all lab-confirmed cases died as the text of the WHO correctly says.
We just updated all statistics across all 34 charts on the pandemic for Wednesday April 1: These are the countries with the fastest doubling times for confirmed cases. The spread of the pandemic is now fastest in poor countries.
In the US, the number of confirmed cases has doubled within the last 4 days. The number of confirmed deaths has doubled within the last 3 days. []
The growth rate for confirmed cases too is very different between countries. This is one of more than 40 visualizations you find in our entry. This particular one is here:

There was no difference in the speed of the outbreak between Italy and the US. The difference – which is leading to the rapidly rising death toll in the US – is that European countries achieved a much faster decline of the outbreak. [source ]

_ This is tragic given the financial, scientific, and medical resources of the US | #COVID19 |
A few notes: You get to the case fatality rate by dividing the total number of detected cases by the total number of deaths. According to the WHO, that is: China: 80,422 detected cases / 2,984 deaths. Outside China: 12,668 detected cases / 214 deaths.
The UK now overtook the Netherlands in detected Covid-19 deaths per capita:
In the entry you find the table that shows how the number of confirmed deaths is increasing. This is the part of the table for all the countries with more than 100 confirmed deaths. The full table is here:
The trends in Spain and Italy continue to be encouraging. Given when they started their social distancing, there's good reason to expect the US to follow in their footsteps soon. ()

What is more important now, is to know how many cases will become serious, or die, because of the disease. I highly recommend this website as it is daily updated with data and graphs you can modify. The CFR in the US now ~1% #COVID19 4/x
As of March 20th Norway has tested more than 40,000 persons: 3.5% were #CODVID19 positive. Higher % in Sweden - but less are tested. Low # of deaths in both. Schools and kindergartens open in Sweden, closed in Norway - otherwise restrictions are similar.
I don't know where you get 25x from? according to I get e.g. 10x CFR compared to France and doubling time for deaths is similar to other countries.

A good analysis of the data we have on covid 19 and its limitations. Current strategies are focused on not overwhelming health systems but in europe/us did acting late cause too much economic distress or did we not delay long enough? Time will tell
There is surely a middle ground to follow where a country can avoid dystopia, and dealing well with this virus. A simple cultural change like making it normal to wear masks in public (as in Japan), is probably more than sufficient.

The goal of containment is to make the spread slower. Of course this will spread everywhere eventually. But the importance is to avoid peaks of those who need intensive care. Key is to distance those at high risk.
This is a really useful coronavirus resource, including information on the all important growth rate

The WHO says the case fatality rate for the coronavirus is now 3.44%. The seasonal flu in the U.S. has a case fatality rate of 0.1% – much, much lower than the coronavirus. Sadly, a whopping 15% of those 80 or older who’ve been infected by it succumb.
