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 exceeded 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, Spain and Belgium curves are flattening
  • Singapore continues in an upwards trajectory, passed USA

  • Belgium still has the highest deaths per 1M, and its curve is flattening
  • UK continues to climb, at present trend could pass Spain in May

Hotspots Around the World (+China as reference)

  • Russia and Chiule continue in a steep climb

  • Mexico continues to increase the number of deaths significantly
  • Russia is in an upwards trend, and could pass Chile in a few days

Brightspots Around the World (+China as reference)

These are the places that have been able to “best” handle the COVID-19 crisis. To qualify as “best” is very subjective, so I must define what I have used to select these as “best”:

1) low number of cases per 1M population (less than 500);
2) low number of active cases (or high number of recoveries);
3) low number of deaths per case volume (3% or less);
4) enough testing performed (more than 2,500 per 1M pop);
5) more than 7 wks from day “1” (day passed 100 cases in total)

  • Good to see Australia and New Zealand in the list, however as you can see we have done well but not as well as other countries
  • Vietnam, Taiwan and Thailand have done better than China

  • Australia has done really well here, better than New Zealand, Slovakia and South Korea; but again not the best in the group
  • Vietnam reported 0 deaths from COVID-19, and most of their cases have already been recovered; Taiwan, Thailand and Costa Rica did better than China

COVID-19 Cases

 

  • World – at current trend the world could pass 6,000,000 cases by 31st May (small increase)

  • Australia – at current trend, could be around 7,000 cases by 31st May

  • Argentina – at current trend could be around 12,000 cases by 31st May – Argentina reported a large new case volume overnight with community transmission spreading in shanty towns and Aged Care facilities around Buenos Aires

  • UK – at current trend UK could be around 310,000 cases by 31st May (small reduction)

  • USA – at current trend could be around 1,800,000 cases by 31st May

 

COVID-19 Deaths

 

  • World – at present trend, total number of deaths from COVID-19 could be under 380,000 by 31st May (small reduction)

  • Australia – at current trend, could still be around 105 by 31st May

  • Argentina – at current trend, deaths could pass 450 by 31st May (small increase)

  • UK – at current trend could be around 47,000 by 31st May (small reduction)

  • USA – at the current trend, deaths could be below 110,000 by 31st May (small reduction)

 

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

  • Ghana passed the 4,500 cases and made the report, displacing the other countries; no other changes

Number of New Recoveries per Cases volume

  • Japan reported a significant increase of recoveries (more than 14% of their caseload)
  • Morocco, Czechia (Czech Republic) and Israel made this report ; all other countries were in this report previously

Highest Tests volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • No changes

Lowest Test volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Afghanistan passed the 4,500 cases and made the report in the 2nd position, displacing all other countries; no other changes

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

  • No signficant increase of tests reported; Israel, Norway and Chile made this report (all other countries were in the report yesterday)

Lowest Deaths per Case volume

  • Ghana passed 4,500 cases and made this report in the 2nd position displacing other countries
  • UAE and Chile swapped places; Israel reported a large number of deaths overnight and dropped to the 11th spot

Highest Deaths per Case volume

  • No changes

Lowest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • Italy and Portugal reported low new case increases and made this report; all of these countries have been reporting low new cases for a few days

Highest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • Large increases reported by Colombia, Ghana and Argentina (more than 8% all of these); Afghanistan passed 4,500 cases and made this report on the 5th position
  • All other countries were reported in this ranking previously
  • 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) – Yellow if >5% increase

  • Japan reported a significant increase of recoveries

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

  • Afghanistan passed the 4,500 cases and made this report on the 1st spot
  • All other countries were already in the Hotspots list (report only shows changes of positions between them)

Brightspots (countries best handling the COVID-19 crisis as per criteria described above)

 

  • Vietnam has reported 0 deaths from COVID-19 and almost all caseload recovered
  • Costa Rica has reported only 801 cases with 7 deaths; however they have not run enough tests (e.g. NZ has similar population size to Costa Rica, and NZ has performed more than 10x the number of tests than Costa Rica)
