COVID-19 statistics and cases around the World

The biggest COVID news to emerge this week is reports of reinfection with Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Belgium all identifying people who have likely been reinfected. This won’t come as a surprise to health experts as they had suspected COVID immunity and reinfection would act in a similar way to the flu.

Data sources

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.

    We really *did* have an ageing population!

    “One woman in her 60s, three men in their 70s, three women in their 80s, seven men in their 80s, six women in their 90s and four men in their 90s.”

    10 people in their 90s?!?

    Won’t someone think of the great-great-grandchildren 😱
