COVID-19 statistics and cases around the World
We think there is some effect from seasons, but poor or delayed responses swamp any benefit. In wealthier southern hemisphere countries, like Australia and New Zealand, the cold weather does not appear to have had an impact on the spread.
Within Central and South America the virus is now spreading at a substantial rate with some countries reporting double and triple numbers compared to last month.
More COVID-19 Statistics and Analysis
This is a list of some of the main data sources we use:
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Probably the best source of the latest COVID-19 statistics
https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Tomas Pueyo has written a number of very good summaries of the strategies to overcome coronavirus
https://www.capitaleconomics.com/the-economic-effects-of-the-coronavirus/ Good source of fast-moving China economic stats.
https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ If you want to be bombarded with every breaking news story, this is the place
https://ncov.dxy.cn/ncovh5/view/pneumonia Faster than worldometers for Chinese data, but slower on rest of the world data. I don’t think China cases matter anymore.
https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports I’m less enamoured of the WHO data now than I was at the start of the crisis. They are providing less information now than they were at the start of the crisis, and it sometimes contradicts country-level data.
https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 The prettiest pictures, but one of the slower sites to update. I don’t find the charts that useful.
