Interesting Facts

  • USA COVID-19 Death Toll: Sadly, at the current trend USA will pass 100,000 deaths sometime today

  • New York Times dated 22nd May 2020: “A vaccine developed in China appears to be safe and may protect people from the new coronavirus, researchers reported on Friday. The early-stage trial, published in the Lancet, was conducted by researchers at several laboratories and included 108 participants aged 18 to 60. Those who received a single dose of the vaccine produced certain immune cells, called T cells, within two weeks. Antibodies needed for immunity peaked at 28 days after the inoculation. “This is promising data, but it’s early data,” said Dr. Dan Barouch, director of vaccine research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, who was not involved in the work. “Over all, I would say this is good news.” (more details: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/22/health/coronavirus-vaccine-china.html)

 

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 and Singapore continues to top this group with the highest numbrer of cases per 1M people
  • USA and Belarus continues a steep upwards trend

  • All deaths per 1M curves seem to be flattening; with the exception of USA and Peru
  • USA could pass Ireland deaths per 1M in a few days; Peru’s curve has turned upwards

Hotspots Around the World (+China as reference)

The logic to determine Hotspots was changed to take to account the last 7 days of reporting, the top-10 countries with the highest trend of case increases are included in this group.

  • Chile, Oman, Brazil and Bolivia lead this group — Chile has more than twice (2x) the caseload per 1M people of Brazil

  • Brazil continues to increase their death rate, they are still about three (3x) higher than Chile (2nd in the group)

Interesting Facts

  • Norway reported their total number of recoveries overnight. They had reported only 32 recoveries until now, and showed as the country with the lowest number of recoveries in the world. However, their recovery rate is more than 92% of their total caseload, which puts them in the 2nd country with the highest rate of recovery in the world. Its neighbor Sweden, with twice the population of Norway, paints a completely different picture due to their different method to handle the Pandemic :

  • Argentina has had large new cases reported everyday for about a week and it is not considered in the COVID-19 Hotspots around the world. However, the death rate in Argentina is still far lower than its neighbors in South America. Argentina has about a quarter (1/4) of Brazil’s population but about twice (2x) the population of Chile, but their approach to handling the crisis has been totally different and here are the results:

The logic to determine Hotspots was changed to take to account the last 7 days of reporting, the top-10 countries with the highest trend of case increases are included in this group.

  • Chile, Oman, Brazil and Bolivia lead this group — Chile has twice (2x) the caseload per 1M people of Brazil
  • Argentina made the Hotspot list today due to large caseload increases everyday for about a week

  • Brazil continues to increase their death rate, they are now four (4x) higher than Chile (2nd in the group)
  • Argentina made the Hotspot report today, and its deaths per 1M are 4th in this group; but when compared with its neighbors Argentina is about 10x lower than Brazil, and 3x lower than Chile

Highest Deaths per 1M Around the World (+China as reference)

These are the countries with the highest death rates to the COVID-19 disease:

  • Most curves seem to be flattening the cases per 1M curve, with the exception of Sweden, Canada and Mexico
  • If continue at the current trend, Sweden could have more cases per 1M people than Italy and UK in a couple of weeks
  • Canada shows signs of the start of flattening the curve

  • Most countries have flattened the deaths per 1M curve too, with the exception of Sweden, Ecuador, Canada and Mexico
  • If maintaining the present trend, Sweden could have more deaths per 1M people than France in just a few days, and could have more deaths per 1M people than Italy in little over a week

Interesting Facts

  • What happened to Argentina?  With the ability to perform a larger number of tests now, Argentina is able to identify cases and attempt to isolate the spread. On 20th May, 474 cases were reported, and just overnight another 1,122 cases were reported to the WHO.  Argentina has had a very high mortality rate for the number of cases reported, which combined with their lack of testing, seemed to indicate there could be a larger caseload (around 12,000). The increases of caseload might be confirming that.

The new cases are localised in three main areas only:

  • The Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (the Federal Capital of the country) is reporting about two thirds (2/3) of the total new cases, with the main sources being shanty towns and Aged Care facilities — The city has been in full lock-down since 20th March, but shanty towns have not observed that and the virus has spread there.  The city is very densely populated, with almost 3 million in an area no bigger than a quarter (1/4) of the area of the City of Canberra (population 400,000 only).

  • The Province of Buenos Aires (most populated state in the country), is reporting about half of the new cases as the City of Buenos Aires (1/6 of the total), with similar main sources — Similarly, the whole province has been in lock-down with the exception of a few shanty towns which border the City of Buenos Aires (many areas in the province far from the City of Buenos Aires have not reported case increases). The most densely populated area in the whole province are the suburbs surrounding the City of Buenos Aires (known as the Greater Buenos Aires), the population there is almost 13 million people, in an area that it is just twice the size of the whole ACT (population about half a million). Outside of the Greater Buenos Aires, the province population is only about 3 million, distributed in an area almost half the size of NSW (population 7.5 million; the rest of the province of Buenos Aires is as densely populated as regional NSW)
  • The Rest of the Country shows very small caseload increases (share the other 1/6 of the total new cases) — Many states are considering slowly re-opening their economies as they have been able to contain the spread of the virus. The population of the rest of the country is about 25 million, distributed in an area that’s about one third (1/3) of the continent of Australia (3x more densely populated than Australia)

The death rate in Argentina is not growing at same pace as the number of cases, which might also confirm testing is allowing the confirm cases that have been in the community and hopefully isolate them and control the spread to avoid future deaths.

 

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).

  • Singapore continues to top this group, USA continues to increase caseload and could pass Belgium and Spain before 31st May
  • Belarus is in a dangerous upwards trend, if their curve does not flatten soon they could take over all countries in this group by early June

  • All other curves seem to be flattening with the exception of USA and Peru (still)
  • USA could pass Ireland deaths per 1M in a few days

Hotspots Around the World (+China as reference)

The logic to determine Hotspots was changed to take to account the last 7 days of reporting, the top-10 countries with the highest trend of case increases are included in this group.

  • Bolivia has joined this group after passing the 4,500 number of cases
  • Chile, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Brazil continue to lead this group (Bolivia very near Brazil’s curve)

  • Bolivia is 2nd in this group, about half the death rate of Brazil so far
  • Brazil continues to increase their death rate, they are now three (3x) higher than Chile

  2. Netherlands and UK do not provide details of their recovered and active cases, therefore they are not included in any reports that are considering these
  3. UK reported an error on their total cases reported yesterday, and reduced their number of cases today (negative case increase). To avoid this data error, I manually reduced yesterday’s total cases in the UK to correct the error, and therefore showing a very small case increase today (but keeping case increases positive values).

 

Interesting Facts

  • The total COVID-19 cases worldwide did pass 5 million cases today; but another important milestone is that recoveries have passed 2 million worldwide too (and that is not counting recoveries from UK or Netherlands who decided not to report them to WHO).
  • Brazil has passed Spain on number of cases tomorrow, and it is now the 3rd country in the world in total number of cases — At its present trend, Brazil could pass Russia in just a couple of days, and take the 2nd position

Many of those affected in Brazil are Indigenous Brazilians. In protest, many Brazilians are wearing masks displaying “Vidas Indígenas Importam”, which translates to “Indigenous Lives are Important”

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

  • Japan and Egypt swapped places; Argentina still in the 10th place for caseload to 1M people worldwide

Highest Cases per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Singapore and Ireland swapped places — Singapore is second to Spain on having the largest caseload per 1M people worldwide

Highest Recoveries per Case volume

  • Israel and Ireland swapped places

Lowest Recoveries per Case volume

  • Portugal and Philippines swapped places
  • Norway continues to show a very low number of recoveries — it is highly probable Norway is just not reporting recoveries to WHO (like UK and Netherlands)

Number of New Recoveries per Cases volume

  • Peru reported a large number of recoveries overnight (more than 6% of their caseload)
  • Countries in YELLOW are new to this ranking (all other countries were there yesterday)

Highest Tests volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • Ireland and Israel swapped places
  • Australia displaced Singapore and took the 10th spot, with more than 1 million tests performed

Lowest Test volume per 1 million (1M) Population

  • No changes

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

  • Ireland performed a large number of tests overnight
  • Sweden also reported many tests performed overnight
  • Countries in YELLOW are new to this ranking (all other countries were there yesterday)

Lowest Deaths per Case volume

  • Kazakhstan and Ghana swapped places

Highest Deaths per Case volume

  • UK and Italy swapped places

Lowest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • It is good to see Ireland and Netherlands reporting low numbers of new cases per caseload; and also that Spain continues to report low new cases for many days
  • Countries in YELLOW are new to this ranking (all other countries were there yesterday)

Highest Number of New Cases overnight per Case volume

  • Brazil , Afghanistan and Chile reported caseload increases of more than 7%
  • Countries in YELLOW are new to this ranking (all other countries were there yesterday)
  • 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

  • Singapore reported a significant increase of recoveries

Hotspots (highest overnight case increase per 1M last 7 days)

These reports were changed from today to consider countries with large caseload increases in the last 7 days as Hotspots (used to only consider 3 days)

  • Egypt was added to this group after reporting large caseload increases for a week; all other countries were in this report yesterday (only position changes in those)

  2. Netherlands and UK do not provide details of their recovered and active cases, therefore they are not included in any reports that are considering these

 

Interesting Facts

  • South America is becoming the next hot region for COVID-19

Peru and Chile have large caseloads, and they are on an upwards trend. At the present trend, Peru and Chile might catch up with Spain on number of cases per 1M by 31st May.

Ecuador had issues not reporting cases which was corrected a few weeks back, and it seems to be in a more stable curve now. Brazil closely followed by Bolivia are next with growing caseloads.

Then there is a group of countries who have been able to maintain their caseloads under control due to very tough lock-down measures: Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay. The numbers reported by Venezuela are extremely good, but not totally reliable due to the lack of transparency of their government.

When considering the death rates, Ecuador has the highest death rate in South America by far.  However, even at its present trend, Ecuador could reach only half the UK’s death volume per 1M people by 31st May (or a third of Belgium’s deaths per 1M).  Still, South American countries are not experiencing the death toll the European countries do.

Peru and Brazil follow Ecuador (about 1/2 of Ecuador’s death rate); followed by Chile and Bolivia.

Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay also have very low death rates compared with their neighbors there. Once again, Venezuela shows extremely low number of deaths which is also questionable due to lack of transparency.

 

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)

  • Singapore has taken the lead on case number per 1M people in the world
  • Belarus, USA and Sweden caseload continues to increase (curve not flattening)

  • All other curves seem to be flattening with the exception of Sweden and USA

Hotspots Around the World (+China as reference)

The logic to determine Hotspots was changed to take to account the last 7 days of reporting, the top-10 countries with the highest trend of case increases are included in this group.

  • Peru . Chile, Oman and Saudi Arabia lead this group, followed by Brazil — no changes from  yesterday

  • Peru and Brazil continue to lead this group; Brazil could pass Peru in just a few days
  • Mexico made this report today, and it is third (3rd); with Chile far behind on the 4th  – Peru and Brazil have about four times (4x) the death rate of Chile; and twice that of Mexico
  • Brazil’s government continues to ignore the crisis as a hoax, their Health Minister resigned yesterday in protest

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 wk from day “1” (day passed 100 cases in total)

  • Palestine joined this group and took Malaysia’s spot
  • Uzbekistan and Australia’s caseloads are increasing lightly still, all other countries see to have flatten the curve (no caseload increases overnight)

  • Palestine took Malaysia’s spot today; all other countries have flatten the curve

Interesting Facts

  • At the current pace, Brazil will pass UK to take the forth position in the world for number of cases (total volume of cases); and if continue at the same pace for about a week it could also pass Spain and take the 3rd position (USA 1st and Russia 2nd) — Brazil has not perform enough tests compared with USA (36 tests per 1000 people) and Russia (47 tests per 1000 people), only performed around 735,224 tests or 3 tests per 1000 people. Therefore, it is highly probably Brazil has a much larger number of infections than currently reported
  • Update on Sweden:

Sweden has almost twice of the population of its closets neighbors Denmark, Finland and Norway; but it has more than fifty percent (50%) more the cases than Denmark, and twice (2x) the one of Norway and almost three times (3x) the caseload of Finland. Sweden’s caseload per 1M people is 10th in the world and at the present trend it could pass 40,000 cases by 31st May.

However, Sweden death rate is significantly higher than that of its neighbors. Sweden has reported more than four times (4x) the number of deaths than Denmark, and more than seven (7x) the number of deaths of Finland or Norway. Also, the curves for new cases and deaths for Denmark, Finland and Norway have already flatten, while the curves for Sweden continue to climb. At the current pace, Sweden could have around more than 5,000 deaths by 31st May.

For all those who still think COVID-19 is just another flu (just heard it yesterday again, and from a medical doctor, unbelievable!), Sweden 2018-19 Influenza caseload was 13,324 with a total of 505 deaths. At the current trend, COVID-19 in Sweden by 31st May could have more than three times (3x) the total number of Influenza cases of last year, and ten times (10x) the number of deaths; and COVID-19 will just no go away after 31st May so the 2019-20 total case and death numbers will be higher.

Interesting Facts

  • For the second day in a row, Netherlands and UK have not provided WHO with their Active numbers (people who have contracted the disease and has not yet recovered). They have not been provided the Recovery numbers for a long time now, but with the Active number you could determine the Recovery number, so now  they are NOT even providing the Active. They are the only 2 countries in the whole world who are not being totally transparent with their data … the question is why?
  • One question I have received is what is the impact of COVID-19 to the traditional Flu in Australia. I got these numbers from the Immunisation Coalition website ( https://www.immunisationcoalition.org.au/news-media/2020-influenza-statistics/ ), and as of 11th May 2020, we have had 20,340 cases of Influenza in Australia.  When considering previous years:
