Coronavirus Update – March 19 March 19, 2020

Posted by geoff in COVID-19, News.

So there’s no good news over the past couple of days, with all majorly infected countries save China & S. Korea showing exponential increases in deaths. The chart below is updated through March 19, and I’ve added the UK.

The UK had a slow start, but erupted over the past 5 days. Germany also had a slow start, but is rapidly accelerating.

The US, sadly, has not been spared, and is closely tracking France’s casualties.

You can see the big picture below:


Italy’s and Spain’s trajectories are absolutely terrifying. The UK may be on the same path.

The Visual Capitalist has a similar chart based on cases, rather than deaths.
