These charts show several different statistics, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, that mark the various ways each country’s outbreak compares in its region and the world.
What it tells you...

About this data
Reuters is collecting daily COVID-19 infections and deaths data for 240 countries and territories around the world, updated regularly throughout each day.
Every country reports those figures a little differently and, inevitably, misses undiagnosed infections and deaths. With this project we are focusing on the trends within countries as they try to contain the virus’ spread, whether they are approaching or past peak infection rates, or if they are seeing a resurgence of infections or deaths.
About COVID-19 data in France
The official tally for France might vary from our figures. This is because we include the probable cases from nursing homes.
