As of March 10 Johns-Hopkins has ceased updating their COVID data sets upon which my plots and analyses rely. For this reason, I will suspend my weekly site updates for now. Let us all hope that this reflects the end of the pandemic that has plagued the world for the past 3 years.
The world has over 676 M confirmed cases (676,340,476) and over 6.8 M people have died (6,879,535) at the time of this post. The top 3 nations remain the US, India, and France in cumulative cases and the US, Russia, and China in this week’s daily case numbers.
The individual regions and countries numbers are shown both as cumulative (red trace) and daily new cases (color coded by world region; thick lines are 7-day averages). We now have lower global case numbers. Most regions and countries report lower infection rates and just a few regions are still reporting higher case numbers. The US reported stable case numbers compared to last week.
In the below bar graph I am analyzing the changes in positive cases over the past week. Most regions and nations report decreases compared to last week, whereas others still report increased case numbers. The US has stable infection levels compared to last week.
Unfortunately, the world keeps reporting large numbers of deaths, although it looks like we are over the peak of the latest wave. Over 6.8 M people have died (6,879,535) at the time of this post and the top 3 regions remain the US, Brazil, and India for cumulative deaths and the US, Japan, and China for daily deaths.
The individual regions and countries numbers are shown both as cumulative and daily new deaths (color coded by world region; thick lines are 7-day averages). The global death numbers are now lower. The US is reporting reduced numbers of deaths.
Stay safe, -Reinhold
