COVID-19 Graphs 30APR2020


  1. USA has not been reporting their full volume of cases and deaths to the WHO organisation as all other countries around the world do – Daily numbers for the USA have been loaded from the WorldMeter website, as they are consistent with the numbers reported by other US government websites.

Comparative Analysis from Day “1” (>100 cases) by Cases/Deaths relative to 1M Populations

Compare countries COVID-19 journey from their day “1” (when they passed the 100 case mark) using their case and death numbers relative to the countries 1 million population (1M).

Highest Caseloads per 1M Population (+China as reference)

  • Ireland has passed Spain as the country with the highest caseload per 1M population
  • Spain has the second highest caseload per 1M, but its curve seems to be flattening ; Belgium could pass Spain in a few days
  • Switzerland has flattened the curve
  • Singapore is in an upwards trajectory, almost exponential

  • Belgium still has the highest and there are no signs of flattening
  • Ireland, UK and France are in a very similar trajectory

New Hotspots Around the World (+China as reference)

  • This report highlights the countries where the highest caseload increase has been recorded for the last 3 days
  • Belarus is in a very steep climb
  • Peru is also on a steep climb, but at a lower pace than Belarus
  • Kuwait and Russia show next in the graph, with similar curves
  • India has had a few days of significant increases but it is still in a better trajectory that China

  • Peru is on a very steep climb, followed by Brazil

Comparing: Argentina, Australia and New Zealand (+China as reference)

  • Argentina’s curve continues to increase slowly

  • Argentina and New Zealand continue to have very similar death curves; but NZ seems to be flatten their curve while Argentina’s is still slowly climbing up

Comparing: Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and UK (+China as reference)

  • All countries trajectories from a case perspective are still all very similar; but Germany and Netherlands seem to be flattened their curves
  • Sweden has passed Germany; UK has passed Netherlands

  • UK has the highest deaths per 1M
  • Netherlands seems to be flattening the curve; Sweden is still in a steep climb trajectory, and might pass Netherlands by mid May

  • USA – at the current trend, deaths could exceed of 100,000 by 15th May

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

  • Thailand and Bangladesh swapped places

Highest Cases per 1 million (1M) Population

  • UK and Portugal swapped places

Highest Recoveries per Case volume

  • Austria and South Korea swapped places

Lowest Recoveries per Case volume

  • No changes

Number of New Recoveries per Cases volume

  • Ireland and Mexico reported large numbers of recoveries and took the first two places in this ranking

Highest Tests volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Israel and Kuwait swapped places
  • Italy performed a significant number of tests and climbed to the fifth position
  • Ireland also performed a large test effort overnight and it is now on the seventh spot
  • Germany and Spain continue to invest heavily in testing

Lowest Test volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Egypt increased its caseload but it did not report any new cases
  • Philippines performed almost 10,000 cases overnight and improved their test to 1M population ration
  • Argentina is still in the bottom-10 for tests per 1M population

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

  • UAE and Israel reported a large number of tests per 1M population overnight
  • Germany performed almost 500,000 tests overnight !! wow !!
  • Singapore is conducting lots of tests too, to control the spread there

Lowest Deaths per Case volume

  • Kazakhstan and UAE swapped places

Highest Deaths per Case volume

  • UK took the top spot because it reported a large number of deaths that had not been reported previously by mistake (COVID-19 deaths that occur on Age Care facilities, not in hospitals)
  • Sweden climbed up another place, which is not good news for Sweden’s approach to deal with COVID-19

Lowest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • France reported 509 cases and dropped to the 6th spot
  • Austria reported very low new cases and climbed up to the 4th spot
  • Low cases reported by Greece, Israel and Portugal – good sign that these countries might be getting COVID-19 under control

Highest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • No country reported increases of more than 10% which is a good sign
  • Bangladesh, Brazil, Peru, Kuwait, Belarus, Saudi Arabia and Mexico continue to grow their caseload at a high rate (they’ve been in this report last few days)
  • 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 5%
  • Singapore had a significant increase of recoveries per 1M population

Hotspots (highest overnight case increase per 1M last 3 days)

  • This is a new ranking, showing the countries where the caseload is growing more last 3 days – Bangladesh, Brazil, Russia, Mexico and India have large populations, the spread of COVID-19
