The US: The “new cases” plateau is holding.
That’s good news. But it is not a decline – which you need to end a lockdown – and deaths are still going up.
Spain: This is heartbreaking. Are we seeing a second wave?
Let’s hope not. Deaths remain elevated.
“Active cases” ticked up too.
Italy: Still fighting the good fight but the rate of decline has slowed.
Deaths still elevated at 500+ per day.
France: More messy data making it difficult to say what the real trend is.
France obviously has a problem with uneven data collection.
Germany: Entering “Italy” territory, in the sense that an initial promising decline in new cases has given way to a more feeble rate of decline.
Deaths still growing.
Active cases show the real story.
The UK: Holding on to the plateau, but only just.
Deaths are still over 700 per day.
Active cases still rising. That’s the real story here.
Iran: The opposite of France, in the sense that this data is so smooth.
It doesn’t display the randomness you’d expect to see.
Turkey: Let’s hope that’s a plateau not a pause before new growth.
Deaths reflect an increase in active cases
Belgium: Population 12 million. Yet is putting up “big country” numbers of cases, and the plateau is weak.
New deaths are trending up.
NYC: Excellent progress in the city, with hospital admissions in steep decline.
Sweden: Took a relaxed approach, which has not included a full-scale lockdown, and is now paying the price.
Singapore: In the early stages of the crisis.
Japan: Also behind the curve.
Here is the grid of most-affected countries.
