Is the Coronavirus Casualty Rate Starting to Slow in Select Countries? March 21, 2020

Posted by geoff in COVID-19, News.

Yesterday was actually a pretty good day, coronavirus-wise. Despite the infection rate rising as testing becomes more prevalent, deaths were down in the United States and France, and the death rate leveled off in Iran. Here are the data for the three countries:

The UK also had a good day, but it is still early in the game when there are still meaningless fluctuations in the data (actually due to the short timelines, that’s kind of true of almost all countries).

Sadly, both Spain and Italy had their worse days: 627 casualties in Italy and 262 in Spain.

With 15 hours elapsed in the current day, the US has only reported 20 deaths. That suggests that we’ll have another (relatively) good day.
