The US: That looks like a "declining plateau" of new cases — a sign that (fingers crossed) America may be past the peak.
New deaths still look alarming but deaths are a lagging indicator.Advertisement
Spain: Until the last two days, Spain was looking like a good news situation with a dramatic and consistent decline in new cases. That has been interrupted by a couple of bad days.
The overall trend is still down, but it is not plain sailing.Advertisement
Italy: Like Spain, Italy was past the worst with new cases in continuous decline. Yesterday was a bad day, let's hope it's a blip and not a trend.
New deaths are still running at a gruelling 500 per day, but remain in decline.Advertisement
Germany: A couple of bad days in Germany but the silver lining is that the new highs are lower than previous highs.
Deaths are still trending up but as a lagging indicator.Advertisement
The "active cases" chart gives you a better idea of what's happening in Germany. Past the worst.
The UK: New hope here — a plateau has returned in terms of new cases, after a couple of days in which it looked like new infections were accelerating.Advertisement
On the downside, the "active cases" chart shows you how much trouble Britain is still in — this upward curve has barely moderated. Not yet at the peak.
Deaths are still trending up, persistently over 750+ daily.Advertisement
China: New data from China yesterday as the government there updated its death count to include patients whose passing went unrecorded in the confusion of the crisis. Look at this grid showing cases and deaths for the worst affected countries and you can see the stark contrast between China and Germany's low death count and everyone else's.
This chart showing the collapse of Chinese GDP in Q1 — from Pantheon Macroeconomics — shows just how much damage COVID-19 has done.Advertisement
Iran: Continued decline in new cases. No surprises here — unless you count the persistent smoothness of these stats.
Most other countries have random blips and troughs in their data.Advertisement
Turkey: Possibly the most worrying country on the map right now — with continued growth of new infections ...
... and new deaths.Advertisement
Austria: New cases and deaths are also trending toward zero.
This is what it looks like when you have done it right.Advertisement
And in Australia: Astonishing success here — only 21 new cases yesterday.
Looks like the Aussies have dodged the bullet.Advertisement
New Zealand: A fifth straight day of new cases at 20 or under.
Deaths look bad but they are a lagging indicator — and that peak is only four (4).Advertisement
