Best and Worst Performers as of Today

The symbol indicates a change in the ranking table from yesterday.

Lowest Cases per 1 million (1M) Population

  • No changes

Highest Cases per 1 million (1M) Population

  • No changes

Highest Recoveries per Case volume

  • No changes

Lowest Recoveries per Case volume

  • UK and Netherlands did not report recoveries to the WHO (have not done it for a while now)
  • No changes

Number of New Recoveries per Cases volume

  • Large numer of recoveries reported by South Africa, Algeria, India and Germany

Highest Tests volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Czeck Republic and Australia swapped places

Lowest Test volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Pakistan and Morocco swapped places; Philippines and Egypt swapped places
  • Argentina is still not doing enough tests for their population size (Argentian has a similar population size to Spain, and Spain has performed almost 20 times the number of tests per 1M population)

Number of New Tests overnight per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Large test efforts continue in Portugal, Italy, Russia, USA and Australia

Lowest Deaths per Case volume

  • Saudi Arabia and Russia swapped places

Highest Deaths per Case volume

  • Belgium continues to be at the top for deaths, it’s been there for a few days
  • France reported a large number fo deaths too, and displaced Algeria
  • UK continues to also report a large number of deaths overnight; while Italy reported fell down one spot (number of deaths overnight at Italy is reducing)

Lowest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • Australia and South Korea swapped places (again)
  • Czech Republic continues to report low new cases overnight – The country has implemented tough measure to control the spread from the start
  • New cases in Iran, Italy, Portugal and Germany are reducing; this is a good sign that the crisis might be controlled there

Highest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • No country showing increases of over 10% which is a good sign
  • Mexico displaced Bangladesh at the top with an almost 10% increase of caseload overnight – Bangladesh still at 2nd spot
  • Russia, Ukraine, South Arabia, Peru and Brazil still reported large increases of caseloads overnight (they’ve done that for several days already)
  • Morocco made it to this ranking with almost 7% caseload increase overnight
  • Daily increases of 14-15% mean case volume could double in around 4-5 days; daily increases of 9-10% mean case volumes could double in around 5-6 days – It is encouraging to see we don’t have any country with daily case increases of 25% of case volumes of higher, as that would mean that caseloads would double in 2-3 days

Highest Number of Days from Day “1” (>100 cases)

  • These are the countries who have been battling with COVID-19 the longest (counted only from their day “1”, when they passed 100 cases) – Cells in YELLOW indicate increases of more than 10%
  • Singapore caseload has increased more than 10% overnight – Singapore acted quickly to establish measures to protect its population when the crisis started (tough norms) and controlled the first wave of COVID-19 very effectively; but a second wave is hitting the country now (perhaps they relaxed their controls too early – this could be a learning for countries considering to open up economies now)
