Iceland is now suffering a steep rise in COVID-19 cases. [→ ] Around 100(!) of these new cases were traced back to a tourist couple who tested positive on arrival and were asked to self-isolate, but did not do as they were told:
The UK that has now the highest rate of confirmed deaths from #COVID19 worldwide. [Link to the source: ]
The rate of cases in the US is now 20-times higher than in the EU. The US is not looking worse because of testing. In fact every country in Europe is now testing better than the US (see next tweet). [source: ]
Without data we can not understand the pandemic. And so we set ourselves the goal of building the most helpful global dashboard to understand what is happening. Now it is out: 👇A thread on what you can do with our new #COVID19 Data Explorer.

It is not true that all countries failed. The very opposite stands out, while some suffer prolonged outbreaks, others responded very well and prevented large outbreaks or turned them around quickly. → All countries, all metrics in our Data Explorer:
One way to see just how fast the pandemic is spreading now: In the last week the world confirmed 1.5 million cases –– more cases in one week than in the entire pandemic up to April 9. [source ]
The death rate in the US in comparison with the death rates in Western Europe. [source: ]
The rise of confirmed cases in Europe is very rapid. – This is showing the 7-day rolling average. Over the last week 138,500 cases were confirmed every day. – The doubling time of confirmed cases for Europe as a whole is two weeks. [interactive source ]
Earlier in the pandemic Japan had managed to get the outbreak under control. A couple of months on, it's now confirming more than 1,000 new cases per day – well above it's earlier 'peak'. From our data explorer:

Switzerland chasing the UK and the Netherlands. What will Italy and Germany do? Join the race or flatten the curve?
*What* happened to covid testing in the last ~2 weeks? Looks like it fell off a cliff
There's been lots of attention on Sweden for being a contrary nation w/ regard to policy. But not a great deal on Australia, which has been contrary w/ regard to outcome. We may have the lowest per capita death rate of any Western nation (lower than NZ)
Several European countries report that rates of confirmed #COVID19 cases are increasing again. [view in our Data Explorer ]

Passamos os países europeus em número de casos, mas passamos subindo MUITO mais. É uma outra tendência. Não vamos parar nem de longe no número de mortes deles, mesmo se controlássemos nossa epidemia agora. O que estamos longe de fazer.
Mas o Brasil tem a população da Europa, tinha que comparar casos por milhão com a Europa toda. Então, esse intervalo tá ficando cada vez menor.

I agree with the authors. Below is our data in which I compare the positive rate in the US with countries that are testing well. The US is still testing way too little. The US can and should do much better – to save money and lives. [data ]
Wie sich die Covid-19 Ansteckungen in der Schweiz beschleunigen: - von 50-100 Ansteckungen pro Tag (7-Tage Schnitt) ging es 17 Tage - von 100-150 pro Tag: 16 Tage - von 150-200 pro Tag: 13 Tage - von 200-250 pro Tag: 9 Tage - von 250-300 pro Tag: 7 Tage
You find the data on the positive rate, cases, deaths, and more (also over time) in our Data Explorer

The EU has a larger older population, a more porous border, a weaker central government, and was hit earlier by the pandemic, yet the US has about twice the fatality rate . I've tried to help while watching failure unfold 😞 Please vote.
And the death count also stayed low in Estonia. After deaths in the spring the small country was able to largely avoid any additional deaths: since mid-May only 4 people died from COVID-19 in Estonia. [source: ]
Europe passes the United States in new cases per capita.
UPDATE: Not seeing this huge drop anymore. Must have been a temporary problem with the data. Glad testing has not declined precipitously
Cumulative confirmed COVID-19 deaths: Sweden (NO-lockdown) vs. Denmark, Finland and Norway (lockdown). More deaths by a factor of 10. But, Sweden's labor market performed slightly better. Worth it?

You can explore all this data for yourself in our Data Explorer There you also find global data and data on confirmed cases, number of tests, and much more
Confirmed cases are down sharply; tests are up. [You can explore these metrics for Nepal – or any other country – in our Data Explorer ]
And despite the extremely poor testing in Argentina the case rate is very high and rising. (Source )
a ton of countries are now doing worse than the United States in per capita Covid-19 cases, and no I don't really know what happened. it's a little like all of Europe just said "fuck it"
You also find it in the Coronavirus Data Explorer – there you can also switch between metrics as you see in the video. And in the rest of the publication too. This new table view is implemented on all the many thousand charts on our site now.
Meanwhile, several countries have contained the virus, and many are making good progress toward that goal.

You can change it whichever way you want. Here it is in linear scale.
Schweiz, quo vadis? Wenn der Trend der Neuansteckungen der letzten Wochen anhält, sind wir in drei Wochen wieder bei rund 600 Fällen pro Tag (7-Tage Durchschnitt)...
daily SARS-CoV-2 cases per million (log scale) since total cases per million people reach 1 and test positivity tiers (in color)
Croatia was on the cards but I imagine some might be surprised by Austria - only showed signs of passing the govt's infection threshold in the past few days
UK now seeing significantly more cases per capita than the US. Deaths are still lower.
The direct link to the comparison of confirmed death rates across Europe is here
Four different countries I've lived in with 4 wildly different #COVID19 trajectories. Granted its hard to compare due to large differences in testing strategies as well as public health measures, but interesting anyway! Sauce:

I den graf artikeln hänvisar till framgår tydligt hur puckeln börjar precis när testningen breddas, och faller när man kunde vänta sig att poolen tidigare smittade inte längre testar positiv med pcr.
How the number of confirmed deaths due to COVID-19 changed within the last 14 days across Europe. Direct link to this in the Explorer (didn’t know that this chart would be possible when we designed the new Data Explorer, but an interesting view I think.)
And deaths are unfortunately also rising very rapidly in Argentina. [Source (also with data for any place in the world): )]
Some countries do better than others when it comes to deaths from covid 19…why? Fewer cases? Better therapy? Link above is “aligned” at 0.1 deaths per million defining t=0. Here’s a video in calendar time. #CCPVirus #COVID19
Hooray, Brazil is world champion of COVID-19 deaths per million hab! It started with a 5-week delay, but it easily surpassed Spain and the US. Will the US still be able to catch up?
The US covid trends are in the right direction (if not as fast as we'd like). 7-day rolling average of daily new cases peaked on Apr 11 and has fallen over 25%, same metric for deaths peaked Apr 22 and is down almost 50%. Source: dashboard
Ireland's cases are growing again, and we have now overtaken the UK for cases per capita. (Log scale)
UK overtakes the US in confirmed cases per million. The UK still has far fewer confirmed deaths per million though.
in case someone wants to try it out, here is our COVID Data Explorer
Cumulative confirmed COVID-19 deaths per million people, G20 countries, Sep 20, 2020
Things looking quite scary in Europe right now. Confirmed cases rising by quite a lot, but deaths still relatively low.
This website is good about letting you make comparisons between different countries' COVID outbreaks. I feel really lucky to be living in Canada, especially BC, right now
Some large countries don't yet show any sign of bending the curve. Neither in confirmed cases – shown here – nor in confirmed deaths (see next tweet). [Interactive in our Data Explorer ]
1/2 One of these rich western countries is not like the others. The US just passed Italy in cumulative COVID death rate, it will likely pass UK this month. Data explorer at:
.: Italy was one of the hardest-hit countries and back in March every 4th test the country did was positive. Now Italy has one of the very lowest rates of positive COVID-19 tests worldwide: 0.5%. ]
And the death rate is also rising very rapidly –  its far exceeding the spring-peak of the pandemic in the country. [source for all data (where you also find data for other countries): ]
